HELPING HANDS

IMG_3893
Wes Campbell, maintenance director with Pinnacle Family Housing, and Fort Irwin Garrison Command Sgt. Maj. Dale Perez demonstrate how to install roof shingles at the Mayor’s Meeting, May 2. Bulletin boards in several of the Fort Irwin housing areas are in need of maintenance. Perez and Campbell showed the housing area mayors how to repair the kiosk roofs, if needed. Roofing and paint supplies are available through the housing self-help office. The culmination of a Girl Scout Journey is completing a Take Action Project. As their final project, Troop 1239, with the assistance of Bitter Springs Mayor Katie Server, provided information boards with a makeover in the Bitter Springs housing area on Fort Irwin, May 6. Girl Scout Brownies Sally Laybourn and Taylor Outtrim along with Junior Ashley Outtrim applied a fresh coat of paint to all three boards. Cadettes Alice Laybourn and Claire Wilson removed all old backgrounds and flyers, washed windows and gave the bulletin boards a fresh look. Residents should be on the lookout for these changes in the Bitter Springs neighborhood.
