Do You Like Demolition?
We're Looking for Volunteers

Move date is September 2 - and there is a lot of work to get the Cumberland building ready! If you enjoy knocking through walls and getting a good workout pushing a wheelbarrow, this is your golden opportunity!

Work begins Saturday, July 24 and will continue through Saturday July 31.

Interested in helping out? Contact Joel Orton, or (908) 413-5846
