Thanks, James.
Have joined up.

Paul,

Welcome aboard! If you would like to catch up on previous activities, please see the "Newsletters" section on the "Home" section of this forum. The "Newsletters" section only shows up when a member logs in, so you won't see it until Ed Lecuyer has entered your name in the forum's member list, but that should happen quite quickly.

-John

*Breaking News*
The crane to set the roof trusses will be onsite at the Museum on Saturday, May 30.  We need as many people as we can to help out that day.

Thos pictures do not do the size of the building justice. Just to stand in the middle with all those trusses overhead, it is huge. Of course, we could tell how long it was walking the rat run back and forth.
