Very Big Log

Please do not bring a log this big, though. 😉

PROGRAM: Scott will demonstrate his lumber mill with a large green ash log. Members are encouraged/welcome to bring a log to have milled as well.

DIRECTIONS: Go through Unionville and his mill gate is the fourth left after the pavement ends. He will put a sign at the entrance.

CARPOOLING: Due to lack of parking space, we encourage you to car pool. Meet in the federal building parking lot at 5:40 pm and we’ll figure out the carpooling from there. People who can walk a bit may also park by the historical marker at the top of Unionville. It is just short quarter mile from there to the mill yard gate. If you are bringing a log you will need to drive in at the mill yard. We might end up doing some vehicle shuffling if there are a few logs.

POTLUCK: Cort Harrington has graciously agreed to provide our main dish, Yucatan Pulled Pork. Yummm! Bring a side dish, dessert and beverage to go with the pulled pork.

Sounds like a very interesting and fun evening program. We’ll probably be making alot more sawdust than any of us usually do! See you on the 7th at Scott’s mill.
