Amtrak tickets to Brunswick for the first week in August booked! Along with a rental car and stay at our favorite Airbnb. Even better: the Amtrak trip is entirely on Amtrak Guest Rewards points. With a roomette from Syracuse to Boston, so we can face each other.

Bernie Perch has completed the patterns for No. 11's Stanchions.

Shown in the photo is all the paperwork and templates used to form the patterns.
Even something simple like stanchions and flag pockets requires quite a bit of time and work.
Bernie reports that he plans to take these patterns to the Cattail Foundry sometime in mid May.

Thanks Bernie!
