Here's an aerial shot of the split team, with the splitter turned off:
That's David, Eileen and Kathy (L to R). Kathy and Greg's American CLS logsplitter is an unsung C4C hero (American CLS Splitters). American's headquarters are right here in Honeoye, NY and the company is operated by Sue and Larry Thomas.
I think about 7 face cords were coaxed out of the logs, in total. It started to drizzle in the early afternoon and the group decided it was more fun to eat!
That's Gary, David, Greg, Kathy, Dale, and Eileen. Not pictured are Bill Doolittle, Celia Deuel, photographer Keith Laurier, and yours truly (after all, it was drizzling and I did not want to melt!). I have a feeling I missed someone...if so please let me know so I can make a correction.
Celia made a food run and the group reclined in the sugar house and told stories over a great lunch. Cookies and donuts were in steady supply and no one left hungry.
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 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 (email@example.com). NYFOA and the charities would be grateful.
