Good Morning,

This is Aziza, and I am writing to ask if there are any young , strong males interested in helping to install a large sculptural piece on Friday, July 21st. There will be heavy lifting. You will need to transport yourself to the site.  We will be working during the morning, and it should take four hours at the most. The piece is being installed at a public high school for boys located in southeast Washington DC. You will be paid for your assistance. Please contact: Aziza (202) 723-9409 . If I am not there PLEASE leave a message, with your name , telephone number. We will be collecting names until Wednesday morning. Thank you all,
