Time / Materials...

We would like to thank the many volunteers for their many hours of dedication to this project.  We recognize them here on this page.  Without these helpful people, our cash donations wouldn’t go as far.  We will try and get everyone on here, if you know of anyone we missed, please send me an email at Koenigsfeld@starband.net  Click on each photo to enlarge.

September 2008

Before and after painting the store (see pictures on the Restoration Gallery) . Al and Wayne Stratton painting  Joe Barry working on the store.  One pic is of Wayne alone on the ladder.  Check out the pictures in the restoration gallery.


Just a quick update on the store. Al and Wayne Stratton have been painting. 
Nov. 1st Joe Barry, Chris Fisher, Wayne Stratton and Al continued to work-- so far two coats of primer have been applied this Fall and  a coat of Latex will go on in the Spring. Joe caulked windows and took some storms with him to see if he can get them fixed--possibly the Amish. Repaired a window sill. Al hopes to get the west end done yet this fall and possibly more. Nothing is planned to do over the winter (yet) but as soon as the weather is OK in the spring work will start inside.

We will let you know if we are going to have a work day but please think about calling Al and seeing if you can be of help. There is always something to do.

We had a wonderful donation from the Rasmussen family in memory of Bev. (I taught with her at Washington for 33 years) Gene ran a gas Station in town and had a restored pump in his yard at home for years. They donated that and $200 to the Store. It is on the website. Dave and Amy are doing such a tremendous job with the site!!! Dave came up in October with some restored signs. They look tremendous. We enjoyed taking him to dinner at cousin Jeff's Uptown and Jeff joined us for conversation.

$395 From Joe Barry for materials to build the new steps and

some window restoration. Joe has been a tremendous help in so many ways and we know this dollar amount donation is probably far from the actual amount. We appreciate Joe's dedication to help, his trips, and his good natured spirit. Thank you, Joe!!
