Last weekend, a small group of volunteers, including yours truly, carefully demolished the old risers at CounterPULSE. Having never used a power drill before, and in the company of those who have, I faked my way through the day, unscrewing, de-nailing, and generally having a blast. Apparently, I have a knack.
The cool part of deconstructing the risers was seeing how much care had gone into building them in the first place! Everything was carefully put together, thus making it much easier to take apart. I think this is a great example of the kind of community we have at CounterPULSE: thoughtful, hard working, creative.
Now that I know I can wheel a power tool, I am ready to help out in the building!! I can’t wait to see the finished risers!
