Work Weekends

Work Weekends 2017

The Volunteer Work Weekends are a unique way for the Chalfonte to prepare for a new season & for her to finally be offered some rest for the winter. As today, the early volunteers were Plumbers, Painters, Electricians, and Master Gardeners bringing their individual talents to each project. All for the grand old Hotel in a beautiful seaside resort.

No season can be complete without the support from those Work Weekend Warriors, and our sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone's hands, strength, perspiration and paint splatter that has been contributed.
