Painting Party: You’re Invited!

Help beautify Orcas Center by joining us for a painting party to update the exterior of the building.


Friday, July 12th: 8am-12pm or 1pm-5pm

Saturday, July 13th:8am-12pm or 1pm-5pm

Sunday, July 14th:8am-12pm or 1pm-5pm

Orcas Center is looking for volunteers to help paint the exterior of the building with beautiful new colors! This will fulfill the volunteer labor portion of our GiveOrcas! grant campaign, and is an integral piece of the puzzle for helping us maintain the building for generations to come.
Here’s what you need to know about our painting party weekend:
8am – Arrive and prep work for painting begins
9am – Painting! (if you signed up for an early shift, it’s OK to arrive at 9am if you want to skip some prep work – coffee and pastries will be available on Saturday and Sunday)
12pm-1pm LUNCH! (salad and sandwiches)
1pm-5pm – More painting and clean up
We will have brushes, rollers, trays, drop-cloths, etc on hand. But, of course if you have a favorite brush, (or two) please feel free to bring them! If you happen to have a step ladder or “A” frame ladder up to 8 feet, we can put them to good use as well!
Be sure to wear grubby clothes, (or at least clothes that you don’t mind getting paint on), and dress according to the weather. As of this writing, it looks like we’re due for partly cloudy skies and a high of around 67/68. Please enter and exit at the shop door, in the back of the building. This will help prevent paint getting on our lobby carpeting.
Thank you again for donating your time and efforts, and don’t forget to come for the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on Sunday, July 14th from 5pm-7pm. It’s a Mexican Fiesta!
You can still sign up for a shift above (to help us plan for refreshments) or just come on over!
See you there!
