My son came home from school and told me that the class was looking for volunteers to help with the fair.
My wife and I didn’t know what kind of volunteers they were looking for, but we signed up to help with the project.
On the sign up sheet, there was a spot to list any special skills or services. I put in that area that I was an HVAC contractor. The booster club must have seen a contractor and thought that I was a building expert. I’m not a general contractor, so I really don’t have the same knowledge and expertise as a person that would be great at building sets and scenery. When the Lee’s Summit school called to ask me for help, I didn’t want to say no. I told the lady on the phone that I would be happy to help in any way possible, but I wanted her to know that I was an HVAC contractor and not a general building contractor. She didn’t seem to mind and told me to come to the school on the following Tuesday so we could have a meet and greet. We used that time to find out how every skill and special talent could help the Lee’s Summit school district earn money for the upcoming field trip. Later during the week the booster club president called me with a great idea. She wanted me to get my boss to donate a portable AC to raffle off at the school function. That was definitely something I could do. I got my boss to donate a heater and an AC for the school function in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.
