Back in April, the WPCA requested that a portion of the trees that were being cut down to make space for the new Fire Department Garage be put aside so that we could use them for a future project. Art Wynans came up with the excellent idea of having them made into split rails for a fence around the hall.
Last month, Art, Ken Smith, and I spent an evening splitting the logs into rails. Saturday was the day I started installing the fence. Hopefully it will be there for many years to enjoy.
Jeff Irwin, WPCA Chair
