Chainsaws for Charity (C4C) - November 6, 2016 - Team Blasts Through the First Load!

Another perfect day in Western NY and the C4C Team completed the first log load on NOV 6.  Thanks again to Tom Gerow and Wagner Hardwoods for their kind donation of logs; they are really a great company.  Check out the Team below after the day was done...they look well fed and well exercised!

That's Tony Ross sitting on the skid and Dale Schaefer way up on the pile.  Chris Howard is on the left, then Greg and Kathy Lessord, Dana Allison and David Deuel.  Eileen Schaefer worked hard and also volunteered to be behind the camera lens.  And.....Boo the Dog took over the supervisory role, and offered several constructive comments on workflow during breaks.  He required frequent treats to stay on target!

That's Chris with the fancy pants and the big saw!

Splittin' 'em, four at a time....The pile holds about 35 face cords.  Rotary Club is planning to make a pick up right around Thanksgiving Day.  They have already presold many face cords to benefit Camp Onseyawa for disabled children.  Jonathan Wordingham, of Edward Jones - Ontario NY, is leading that team.  Dr. Greg Gullo and Rotary Canandaigua are working with Mr. Wordingham and Rotary Ontario-Walworth to bring maximum funds to the Camp.  It is a pleasure to work with The Rotary!

Sharon Howard makes the best Banana Bread!  It is estimated that Dale's pants pockets can hold six donuts per side and two pieces of Banana Bread in his lapel pocket.  There's Boo....giving another work-related suggestion and receiving another treat!

Super Colossal Hardware Malfunction!  The Team gets to work on diagnosis, mitigation plan, surgery, post-op discussions and high-fiving!  Success....and no...we did not run out of gasoline!

Please join us if you're a NYFOA member; send Eileen a note (dschaefer1@frontiernet.net).  Please make a small donation to help NYFOA's Chainsaws for Charity meet its expenses.  Check or Paypal is fine, just send me a note (dfaklis@frontiernet.net).  Thanks! 

PS  We need a sign painter volunteer for a big sign on RT 20, which highlights the effort.  Know a painter who'd like to volunteer to paint our sign?  Let us know!
