Fence around the Community Hall

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
