Giving Back to the Community: Update

R.P. Johnson’s event, We Build It Forward,  brought  community members and local businesses together to give back to neighbors, schools, parks, and landmarks in the local area.  In fact, ten projects in seven towns were completed on June 25, 2011, and included fundraisers, yard cleanups, fixing park shelters, and painting an entire house.

Bonin Architects led a team to build a community bulletin board at the Andover NH transfer station, and had help from our employees, kids, and even our clients!  Architect Jeremy Bonin designed the bulletin board - not a timber frame, but an attractive design nonetheless!

Other community projects completed were painting and repairing a picket fence at East Andover Preschool, replacing the roof on a mobile home in Sunapee, NH, building a handicap ramp, installing two storm doors and doing a yard cleanup in Sutton Mills, and cleaning up Wadleigh State Park in North Sutton.

The day was documented by The Kearsarge Chronicle.  Watch the community come together on this day of giving back, and watch for details on next year’s We Build It Forward!
