Rake Up Boise - Our Fifth Year - Team Cathy

Rescheduled! the forecast for this coming Saturday is clear so far, so keep your fingers crossed! We'll keep the time and meet-up location the same. It probably doesn't matter which event you sign up for - I just wanted to make sure everyone was aware both houses are rescheduled for this day!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It's time again for one of our favorite events, Rake Up Boise!

BAS participates every year.  Here's how it usually goes:

We get 2-3 houses assigned and we split into groups of 8-10 people.  So we need a team captain for each group.

We meet in a place (or places) near each home and carpool to the house to rake.

Afterwards, each time goes out for breakfast. Normally we're done with breakfast by Noon-ish.

I have registered BAS with NHS, and am waiting to get our house assignments.  Once I get the information I will update this event with the addresses.

We do need at least 15-20 people, so if you could go ahead and RSVP that would be helpful. We can figure out teams (and captains) when we know the location of the homes in a week or two.

Kids are MOST WELCOME to come help...they really enjoy it. 

Bonus: We often get Appreciation Goodies from our clients!  ;o)

    I'm really sorry. I haven't been feeling well all afternoon and it is 8:00 a.m. and I haven't left work yet. Still have a bit to wrap up before calling it a night. Again, I'm really sorry.

    Do we need anything else - lawn & leaf bags, etc. I did this in Nampa with a group and we were throwing all the leaves in the back of a landscaper's pick-up truck, we found empty 35-ish gallon trash cans helpful - we'd load leaves in the cans and throw them in the truck from with the cans.

      I BELIEVE Diane picked up bags from the Rake Up Boise organization. They usually provide the bags.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
