Plumbers Install Water Heater for Boys & Girls Club

Bedford, NH – The team at Legacy Mechanical Services, LLC recently donated their time to the installation of a new water heater for the Boys & Girls Club of Manchester at Camp Foster in Bedford.

Irwin, who took the lead on the installation, assembles tools and materials.

The Boys & Girls Club Camp Foster provides inner city children from Manchester with an outdoor camp where they can experience activities ranging from swimming and fishing to arts and STEM projects. The water heater at Camp Foster is used to heat the water to the pool showers used by campers before and after using the camp pool.

The heater was donated by The Granite Group, with facilitation by Territory Representative Shane Glennon. The plumbers spent an afternoon installing the water heater, enjoying pizza, and taking an occasional dive in the pool to cool off.

Almawali (l) and Michael Valente, project leader/plumber/gasfitter, solder the mixing valve, expansion tank, and water piping assembly for the new water heater.
