The Cardwell Manor camp lodge at the Cherokee Outdoor YMCA got a bit of a makeover recently, thanks to close to 60 volunteers who took part in the YMCA’s Days of Service event.
Volunteers for the Cherokee Outdoor Painting Project included students from Woodstock High School’s Interact Club, Home Depot, as well as members and nonmembers of the YMCA. They worked through the sweltering heat to replace outdated siding, repaint exteriors, prune and clean shrubbery, spread mulch, build benches, and paint fencing.
“We are so thankful to our wonderful volunteers,” said Ryder B. Leary, associate executive director of the Cherokee Outdoor & G. Cecil Pruett Community Center Family YMCAs. “Their hard work put new life back into a wonderful aspect of our Cherokee Outdoor YMCA.”
