To Whom It May Concern:

This May 2018,  I would like to take a weekend or two ( Friday and Saturday nights ), to go out to the Execution Rocks Lighthouse, NY, and do a lot of scraping and sanding of the walls of the interior keeper’s quarters and then paint with rollers and brushes two Benjamin Moore colors: Mystic Beige (on the walls) and Arctic White ( on the trim), to clean the place up cosmetically for the summer.

I am hoping several people will contact me that can help with the work and pick up their boat transportation fee ( about $75 round trip including tip) with North Shore Boat Rental, the cost of some paint, and a roller and paint brushes you’d like to use and sandpaper and a scraper. Any home depot can hook you up! Bring some work cloths and your sleeping bags. Flashlights are helpful too!

I’ll bring the food, ice and water. Let me know what you like to eat. 

Please let me know – Craig Morrison –

Thank you very much!
