Another great day at the C4C landing! Lots of action, lots of wood chips, and thanks to Eileen, lots of donuts! Gary worked with Kathy at the splitter and also took a bunch of great pictures for us. Here is a sequence of pics of Kathy, which demonstrates the emotions of operating a fine logsplitter.
A BIG Thanks! to John Schumacher and his team at Runnings - Brockport! We're grateful for their kind discount on the splitter and their contribution to the C4C effort to help NY's forests and NY's children. Stop by and see them and check out their line of Black Diamond splitters. You too will experience determination, confidence and success!
Here's a pic of Nick working his way through the pile of ash logs:
All of the C4C firewood is measured carefully before cutting so that all pieces are 16" long. This gives rise to some short pieces that don't get stacked, but nothing is wasted.
Greg is working to cut another pile of logs and David tries to keep up with stacking all of the wood that I'm splitting by hand. As I got even more productive with the maul, it took Greg, David and Eileen to approach keeping up with me!
Next up...every second and fourth Wednesday's at David and Celia's. June 13, June 27, 9am-noon, or so. We're making progress on the current pile and our partners at The Rotary will be by in July to pick up and deliver firewood to the generous patrons. 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!
