Very cool indeed! I have to ask...is the reporter Steve Patterson? He was quite surprised when I told him that give our homes away for free. Excited that Springfield and PSOS is getting good press. :)

No, Amanda.

Update on supply and needs list:

Here are some supply donations that we are requesting:
4x8 sheets of plastic lattice
2x4s (at least 4' long, 8' length better)
(used fine) gallons of trim paint
Paint brushes
Rollers
Trash bags
Paint cups and buckets
Paint rags
Cases of water
Cases of Gatorade

What can you bring to use yourself?
Yard care "stuff" (rakes, gloves, trimmers, weed whackers)
Fancy paint brushes and rollers for your use
Skil Saw
Cordless Drill
Empty buckets and paint cups
Chair to relax in
Sun umbrella
Large awnings (we will need shade!)
Coolers of ice

If you can commit to a donation, please post here or email: preservationsos@yahoo.com so we can keep track.

Additionally, if folks would consider donating $10 (or certainly more) towards the cause, we could cover a lot of Dancy Terrace with collective donations. Donations can be made via our website http://www.preservationsos.org or given the day of the event.

We appreciate the support.

We did t-shirts before on Hailing's donation.
We still have plenty of those shirts.
Yes, we can do more shirts, but I would order only a couple dozen.
Plenty of sites online to create shirts easily enough and have shipped.
We'd have to sell them to make back our money.

You wanna do it Jaxunicorn?

We do have some supplies at Dancy from Cash Mob. Not sure exactly what, but quite a stash as I recall.

we do have a few cases of water, some paint and such if I remember right (just checked on it a couple weeks back). BTW: I got one or two Lowes gift cards with unknown value that I can donate.

When you mix all paint together it becomes taupe
