Chainsaws for Charity (C4C) - October 9, 2016 - Big Participation!

As the old sage goes, "the way to a firewood cutter's heart is through their stomach!"  An even dozen NYFOA volunteers came out on Sunday October 9 to help Habitat for Humanity, Rotary Club's Camp Onseyawa for Children and the VFW's Veteran Outreach...and eat!  They enjoyed great food, drink and camaraderie!  Here's what they looked like beforehand at David and Celia's...

Left to Right:  David Deuel, Kathy Lessord, Chris Howard, Tony Ross, Greg Lessord, Gary Koplun, Eileen Schaefer, Dale Schaefer, Jim Miller and Celia Deuel.  Bill Doolittle just missed being in this picture.  Chips were flying at 3pm and the stackers had their hands full for sure.  8 face cords today!

That's Bill Doolittle in the foreground to the right, handling a split in each hand.  Gary's cutting to the left and Chris is marking the log to a length of 16".  Dale is somewhere, likely taking a nap!

The picture above was taken during an intermission, in David's sugarhouse.  Donuts, coffee, and just shootin' the breeze.  We take frequent breaks to meet with each other and talk woodlands and wildlife. 

That's Eileen, with an encouraging wave, signaling that she needs more firewood to stack!

The physical portion of the event concluded about 6pm, when the gang relocated to David's timber-framed pavilion, to sit around the campfire and replace some calories.  Celia served pizza, cider and all sorts of goodies.  The view from up there on the hill is fantastic, and we could see Geneseo and points south for miles and miles.

NYFOA's C4C and its partners are doing great things to help important charities.  These charities help people all across our region.  Are you a NYFOA member and want to join in the fun?  Please contact Eileen at:

Do you love woodlands and want to help people in need?  Would you like to make a donation of delivered logs or money to help with expenses?  We'd be grateful and 100% of the proceeds benefits the charities.  And...NYFOA is a IRS-recognized charity.  Please write to Eileen and tell her how you would like to help!  Thanks!

Our elm trees that have survived the last fifteen years of the disease being in our woods are looking very healthy.  I really enjoy the elms and we have a few very good size ones now.  I would lie some day to make some lumber with them.Continue
