Chainsaws for Charity (C4C) - January 10, 2018 - Flash Mob!

We're short?  How can that be?  We were way ahead of schedule for this year! With the recent cold snap, the need for firewood is relentless.  The Rotary of Walworth-Ontario needed an additional eight facecords and the Canandaigua Rotary needed two more, all to help Camp Onseyawa.   But.... we only had six stacked and ready to go.  So, a Flash Mob was called for High Noon on January 10 to make more heat!  Fortunately, thanks to Wagner Hardwoods, we have material that is ready to burn right…See More
