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 now.

With only hours notice, Bill, Dana, Greg, David, and yours truly took time away from watching Oprah and got to it.  The weather was beautiful with temps near 50. 

Here is an action shot.  I'm not sure what David is doing, but I am sure what the other guys are up to!

"And your little dog too!"  Julie has too much fun with this stuff.

Eileen is planning our next gathering, which might take place either the first or second week of February (weather permitting).

If you're a NYFOA member and want to have some fun while doing good, please send Eileen a note at dschaefer1@frontiernet.net.  She will place you on the mailing list so that you will be aware of the next event (February).  If you'd rather just attend the post-firewood social, you're more than welcome!  It really is a fine time for all. 

If you would like to donate working equipment (e.g. hydraulic log splitter, maul, chainsaw, etc) or cash to help defray some expenses, please send me a note (dfaklis@frontiernet.net).  NYFOA and the charities would be grateful.
