Cabin Construction and Maintenance
Volunteer opportunities to maintain and improve PATC cabins are often available. The PATC Cabins Operations Committee undertakes larger projects, which are announced in the monthly newsletter, the Potomac Appalachian, and on the club calendar. Additionally, Cabin Maintenance Volunteers conduct visits to their cabins at least four times a year, and often more. Club-wide, this results in about 150 cabin work trips annually.
Occasionally, positions for PATC Cabin Maintenance Volunteers become vacant. If you believe that you have the interest, time, and requisite skills for this role, download and complete the Cabin Maintenance Volunteer Form and email it to the Cabin Maintenance Chair. Likewise, the form can be mailed to club headquarters at 118 Park Street SE, Vienna, VA 22180.
For more information, contact Cabin Maintenance Chair Mel Merritt, Cabins Construction and Major Repairs Chair Bruce Berberick, or Cabin Coordinator Martha Reynolds.

More About Cabin Work Crews
Work crews assist the
lead Maintenance Volunteer with various cabin duties and projects. If
you are new to PATC cabins, joining a work crew is an excellent way to
learn how to responsibly use a cabin, while providing a valuable service
to PATC. Although many maintenance volunteers have recruited a
volunteer team, others seek help by posting notices and events in the Potomac Appalachian and on the online calendar.
