Chainsaws for Charity (C4C) - October 13, 2018 - Firewood Finds New Homes!

I'm happy to report that 2018's hard work is paying off for Camp Onseyawa (https://www.onseyawa.org/), The Rotary and NYFOA.  The team from the Walworth-Ontario Rotary came to work on Saturday October 13 and picked up another six face cords for their patrons in and near Wayne County.  I asked Jonathan Wordingham, the team's leader, to take some pics:

In concert with Chainsaws for Charity, the Walworth-Ontario team has raised thousands of dollars for the camp, which serves children with special needs.  They plan to return in a couple of weeks for another four face cords.

New C4C T-shirts arrived in September in a array of sizes.  They make great stocking stuffers and are only $10 when picked up at the landing.

This coming Saturday, the team from the Canandaigua Rotary will visit the landing and pick up twenty face cords.  That firewood will then travel to new homes in and near Ontario County and all of the cash will go to Camp Onseyawa too.  I'll have more to say about their efforts next week!

We're extremely grateful to our partners at Wagner Hardwoods for their strong and continuing support.  Ty Bowgren, Rusty VanZile, Brian Mix, and Tom Gerow continue to donate and deliver excellent and clean logs for the C4C operation.  Wagner really cares about our forests and forest owners.  This is one strong team!

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.  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.  See  you next time!
