Once again the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce will be getting ready for the summer season by holding its annual Dock Day. Work is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Saturday June 13.
According to Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sue Dove, the volunteer force should finish up around 2 p.m. if all goes well.
"Every pair of hands makes a big difference, so even if you can only come for an hour or two it would be greatly appreciated," Dove wrote in a letter to volunteers. "You don't need to call unless you have a question, just show up on the 13th."
The dock committee has worked hard to get lots of equipment and machinery to make the work go as easy and quickly as possible. One thing the committee would like to request, though, is that if volunteers have a wet suit, bring it with you if you are willing to wear it in the water or allow someone else to wear it.
Work gloves and work boots or sneakers are also mandatory to avoid injury.
As in the past, some of the local restaurants will be donating refreshments, beverages and pizza, chicken tenders or hot dogs for lunch so the committee will try to make sure no one gets too cold or hungry, Dove said.
