Help Wanted

Help wanted for Jenkins cleanup:

Help wanted removing abandoned items and cleaning an old home site in a remote area (boat access only). Work will be starting on or near June 5th, weather permitting. It would be great if you have hand tools / demolition tools and a boat to get you there, but it's not required. We can pay cash to save you a trip to the bank.
