interested in helping with a Pancake Breakfast on Sun, 19 Feb 17.
G. 2017 Deployment (work starts on Thurs, 1 Jun 17): After sending copies of 2017 proposed plans for using 32-ft
roof trusses to cover the front porch to the Crew Leaders, Framing/Roofing Crew Leader Bob Corsi objected to the front
porch side eaves as being too much work and Siding Crew Leader thought the revised roof scheme would add a lot more
work. The Construction Director did not originally propose this revised roof scheme but thought the porch side eaves
were necessary for some rain protection for the front porch and to make a less complicated intersection of the wall and
upper roof for the vinyl siding. Without the porch side eaves, a metal break would be required to make metal flashing at
the wall-siding intersection. Harry Wallace, the Good Shepherd Mission P.O.C. and Bob Corsi then proposed using all
32-ft roof trusses with 52-ft long front porch. The Construction Director rejected this idea as being too costly and would
add much more work for the Support and Siding Crews. The Construction Director will now revise the 2017 drawings
and material list back to the front porch gable roof used in recent past years.
7. New Business: None.
8. The Crew Meeting was adjourned at 7:30 PM and the next Board Meeting was set for 7 PM, Thursday, 10 Nov 16, at
9803 S. 21st Circle.
