Park Serve Day April 21
A great crew turned out to clean and scrape and oil for DCR’s Park Serve Day. The weather started cloudy but the sun soon heated the deck area under the winter cover. By the end of the day vents were cut in the cover to allow some cool breeze in.
The over 30 volunteers demonstrated Ernestina‘s appeal as Massachusetts Official Vessel with people traveling from across the Commonwealth to help. From Lenox in the Berkshires to Charlestown, Jamaica Plain and Brockton and of course the Greater New Bedford area, volunteers arrived to “show Ernestina some love”
Thanks to all who volunteered to work toward getting Ernestina shipshape and thanks to DCR carpenter Manny Silva and Manager Don Matinzi who worked to make the day possible. The next work day is scheduled for May 12. Check back for details.
The day finished with the treat of yummy, cheesy pizza from Nelson Hockert-Lotz and Domino’s Pizza Team New Bedford. Thank you Nelson!
