Yesterday, we got all the donated mosaic materials ready for the winter. With the help of a few hired muscles, we cleaned, re-stacked and wrapped all the boxes on pallets (donated from Cartons & Crates). The Wine Train will be storing them in a container for us over the winter to avoid the rain and elements.
For the most part, the donations are sound in any weather, but the plastic and cardboard boxes they are stacked in, definitely do not. Even the boxes I got this summer were starting to disintegrate in our hands as we moved them.
Here's hoping we can find a more permanent solution in 2018!
