Now that winter has finally given way to spring, there is much work to be done at the Bradley House. Several weeks ago some wonderful Girl Scouts volunteered their time to plant some spring flowers, but we are in desperate need of additional work on the house and in the lawn.
 
The Restoration, Operations, & Maintenance Committee has organized a house-wide work day this Saturday, May 28th, beginning at 8 am. We expect to be done no later than noon.
 
Volunteers will be divided into 3 main groups:
 
• Yard cleanup and planting
 
• House interior cleaning
 
• Screen installation/storm removal
 
If you are able to assist us, please come ready to work with your favorite tools and supplies. If you know of a youth in the community who needs service hours, this would also be an appropriate activity for them.
 
If you are unable to work there are other ways you can help. We are in need of supplies and would greatly appreciate donations or loans of:
 
• Rakes and hand gardening tools
 
• Mulch
 
• Annuals and perennials - call or email for more information on specific needs
 
Thank you so much for your continued support.  We hope to see you all at the work day if you are able to help, and make sure to join us for the 1st Annual Meeting on June 8th at Kankakee River North (formerly Sully's)!
