Spring has sprung. It's that time of the year to get busy with clean-up and spruce up of the yard, and garage. On Saturday, April 29 West Lafayette and surrounding area residents will have a chance to have some youthful muscles around to help with some of those heavy duty clean-up tasks and projects that you may be needing help with.
Ridgewood High School wrestling students will be available to hire out for up to two hours.
A minimum of a $10 donation per wrestler is requested as a fundraiser for the Ridgewood Wrestling Boosters. It is suggested that residents give donations based on the tasks being requested.
The wrestlers will work in pairs and will be able to provide assistance with general clean-up of the yard, loading and hauling debris and junk away, painting, moving heavier items, assisting with organizing items.
The wrestlers will arrive at your residence via only authorized transportation. The wrestlers cannot be transported to other locations by residents and must complete the requested tasks on the site.
Besides the general yard debris, some of the other items that can be hauled away include old appliances, grills, lawn furniture, mowers, motors, old automobile batteries, bicycles, scrap metal.
There will be minimal availability for the wrestlers this year due to the growing popularity of the event and limited time constraints of the wrestlers, and supporting persons. For further information call or text Dianne at 740-502-5288.
