Yes, Ira, it was great working with you too. You were a big help on the garage especially when you went out for Ken and bought the air compressor. Your efforts enabled us to get more work done in less time.

I'll second what Stephen and Duncan said, it was good working with you Ira.  I'll add that I don't think there are any "piddly" jobs at the museum.  Everyone who comes to volunteer is important no matter what they do.  The garage project is a good example: we had people measuring, cutting lumber, moving boards and handing them up to others on the staging, nailing, etc. Whether you worked on the roof or helped from below, everyone had a task.  Ken served as our saftey officer, watching from the ground as people, tools, lumber and equipment moved higher and higher.  This is a practice used in the fire service.   Having someone stand back to view the big picture helps everyone on the job site.

We got a LOT done thanks to the 20 or so who helped over the four days.

Yes, we had a good and productive weekend.  The weather cooperated, again (certainly was better than what I left behind at home).

A belated thank you to Linda and the other ladies who kept us fed and also to the local folks who get things ready before we arrive and clean up after us when we leave.

I am happy to report that, according to Bob L and Gordon C, the water in the glass of the steam engine no longer nearly drops out of sight at Alna Center station.

Fred.
I always did think I was a cut above the rest (as I duck).
