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)

    Hi All. Yes, bring a rake and a broom if you have them. I have the bags, we're all set. See you at Freddies!

    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.
