I'm not sure if I can make it, but certainly will try, perhaps on Aug.
Is there a camping facility nearby where I can set up a tent to save some $?

> Volunteers Requested Beginning August 10!
> Beginning on Monday morning, August 10, I will be in Roanoke to lead the
> effort to move of materials from GOB-East to the N&WHS Archives on Salem
> Ave. and a new space we have leased at 2240 Shenandoah Ave. We need as many
> volunteers as we can get; it would be nice if everyone had tools and a
> truck! Several volunteers a day would be excellent. I anticipate needing
> multiple days to get the area prepared with shelving set up. We are still
> working with NS regarding access to our space at GOB-East.
> The first order of business will be moving and installing shelving, then
> moving books, and other material from our existing Salem Ave. facility to
> the new Shenandoah space (which is conveniently located on the other side
> of the tracks, just beyond the Shaffers Crossing underpass). This is
> necessary in an effort to create better flow and some working space. We
> have hired a fencing contractor (at a reasonable rate) to erect a six-foot
> security perimeter for the new Shenandoah location. Due to the fencing
> contractor’s busy schedule, the fencing will not be installed until later
> at Shenandoah Avenue.
> As for GOB-East, we will concentrate packing the easy to get to material
> into manageable boxes first and hire professional movers to handle the
> heavy stuff after Labor Day (when their rate is $100 an hour less). As of
> this writing, we have been granted a 90-day extension by Norfolk Southern,
> which will expire October 30th. As we said, we are still working with NS
> regarding what and when we can access GOB-East.
> I have negotiated a nightly rate of $49.99 with the Motel Six that is
> located just off of I-81 Exit 137 in Salem. At the bottom of either ramp,
> turn right on Wildwood Road and the Motel 6 is just down the street on the
> right. It is convenient to Salem eateries and shopping centers along Route
> 11/460/West Main Street.
> While rather rudimentary– and certainly not The Hotel Roanoke or The
> Greenbrier–it is, nonetheless, clean and functional. Rooms have cable TV,
> and a microwave and refrigerator are provided. Most importantly, I have
> stayed there many times without encountering bed bugs!
> Each morning, we will report to the N&WHS Salem Ave. archives at 8:30
> a.m., with the work to commence shortly thereafter. Refreshments and lunch
> will be provided; there will also be breaks in the morning and afternoon.
> As long as this COVID-19 Pandemic continues, social distancing will be
> practiced and masks must be worn while on NS and N&WHS premises at all
> times.
> I look forward to working with fellow members and others who wish to
> participate, Please contact me at 304-633-8512 or send an email to:
> caseyatkenova at aol.com. Thanks!
> Respectfully
> President, N&WHS
