    My new project is going to the dump !!!

    Literally

    Our Lions Club collects used eyeglasses and recycles them for those in need. We had a collection spot at our dump for townsfolk to drop off their donations. After 10 or so years the old drop off was falling apart so of course I volunteered to make a new one. Between the Lions Club, Masons, and Church I just can't seem to say no to anyone

    ( I really don't want to say no to anyone is just sounds cool to complain about it a little )

    Dropped it off at the dump today. It will hold a 13 gallon trash bag full of eyeglasses and old cell phones.
    Just waiting for one of the guys to laminate a sign for the top of the lid.
    This is small town big news. It will probably be in the newspaper Thursday
