The main turret on the Roxhill Castle playground gear has been mortared with a planned design in the works of a dragon that will wrap around the top. The organizers are seeking volunteers to help with the final phase of the project, doing detail work and helping cut tile.
Roxhill Castle still needs your help; Up next tiling and detail work
While the primary structures are up at Roxhill Park, (as the Herald reported Nov. 6) there is work remaining according organizers Mat and Whitney McBride who are seeking volunteers for the finishing and detail phase of the project.
What's left? On Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 9am till 4:30pm Whitney needs people to, "drive in screws, router sharp edges, sand sharp edges. I need some skilled carpenters to take care of some gaps in the castle."
But beyond the work Tuesday, she's seeking people who would like to learn (and help) cut tiles for a special decorative top going on the main castle turret. That part was mortared on Friday but it must cure for several weeks before the tile goes on. So, people who can cut tiles are needed. The design, a mosaic dragon that will wrap around the turret top is being done by artist Michael Henderson. They plan on using ceramic and glass tile for the project.
If you'd like to volunteer email Roxhillcastle@gmail.com,
McBride said they are considering doing a, "6 month-a-versary" pot luck congratulatory event in the spring or summer to thank all the volunteers who worked on the project.
