Just a quick update on the midweek C4C sessions at David and Celia's and a reminder about future events. With the summer heat at the firewood landing, we've been solving more of society's problems through jabberjaw-ing and stacking less firewood! But that really is the fun of C4C....raise some money for a good cause and have some laughs in the process.
Greg, Bill, David, Keith, Jim, others, and I have been sharing donuts and sawdust on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. Start time is about 9am and it's wrapped up at about noon. These midweek sessions provide an easy way to work on the log pile and you still have the rest of the day to take a nap!
The first log load provided by Wagner Hardwoods for 2018 is nearly done and Jonathan Wordingham and his team of Rotarians are coming over this Saturday to pick up firewood destined for burners near Walworth-Ontario. I need to contact Dr. Greg Gullo so that we can work together to get some C4C firewood into Canandaigua homes. Wagner's Team and The Rotary are great partners to work with. The logs provided by Wagner are clean and top quality; it's a pleasure to process them.
Next up...most every second and fourth Wednesday's at David and Celia's, but there is no event on August 8. Upcoming Wednesdays include: July 25, August 22, 9am-noon.
Eileen is in the process of organizing and scheduling the next Saturday event for the first or second week in August. I think the plan is to start around 9 and then have a picnic lunch. Look for an email from Eileen soon and please mark your calenders! Please spread the word to other NYFOA members; we'd love to see them at the landing!
All of this supplies much needed cash for Camp Onseyawa for children with special needs. Check out their website: https://www.onseyawa.org/
So if you're a NYFOA member and want to have some fun while doing good, please send Eileen a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will place you on the mailing list. 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 or cash to help defray some expenses, please send me a note (email@example.com). NYFOA and the charities would be grateful. See you next time!
