The Cardington-Lincoln Public Library roof is shining again with a coat of fresh paint, thanks to a group of volunteers.
Nine men arrived Saturday morning and with paint brushes in hand and climbed ladders to brush the silvery paint on the roof panels of the library, the old library and the annex, all at 128 East Main Street.
Troy Ruehrmund, spokesperson for the group, said “we just want to help when and where we can.”
The same group and others recently replaced the roof and completed other repairs on the log cabin in the Community Park.
Their next project will focus on the park’s gazebo to replace the roof.
Products used were supplied by Cardington Home and Auto and the noon luncheon was provided by Suzee-Q’s.
Lisa Murray, the library’s director, said “I have difficulty finding the words to thank these guys for having the heart to share their time and talents
with the community It is tough to make a different in this world but they do it on a regular basis. We paid them with smiles and food. It seems so little.”
She concluded her quote with a line from William Shakespeare, “I can no other answer make, but thanks and thanks.”
Crew members include Jon Johnson, Jim Clinger, Pat Drouhard, Sean Lorimer, Terry Roberts, Sonny Minturn, Troy Ruehrmund, Randy Plowman and Monty Maceyko.
