UPDATE: The old bridge has been replaced with a new one. Another challenging but satisfying.work day. A job well done in the service of others.
The old bridge (puncheon) linking Descanso Way and the Santa Venetia Marsh Preserve was rotten and needed replacing. Working with the San Rafael Parks District, seven intrepid members of RCME helped fabricate a replacement. On Saturday, September 11, the group spent a day getting most of the elements ready for installation. It involved a lot of measuring, drilling and matching of pieces. But it's now set up for another day of finishing it off and installing it. Lots of work, but not a single hole was drilled where it shouldn't have been. Very satisfying way to spend a day in service of others.
