Our equivalent to breaking ground on the Museum's new Vintage Garage and Education Center! Volunteers are sawing trees cut down two days ago at Benny Young's and Jerry Kramer's properties in Indiana. This team is using Dan Conder's sawmill to produce board and batten.
The wood will be used to line the interior concrete block walls of the area in the Annex that will be the Vintage Garage. Work should begin this summer and we have hopes to finish it in 2017. These photos show that the museum really does belong to its members. It wouldn't happen without volunteers and people dedicated to their hobby.
Come to Richmond's Homecoming June 2-4 and see what the vision will be!

God bless you all !!! How neat is that ?
That's wonderful! I'm looking forward to seeing the progress when we're in Richmond for The Homecoming on June 2 to 4th.
Many thanks to each of you that helped on this project.
A few good things about those bandsaws is they don't waste much wood,they beat hauling logs to a sawmill,and as slow as they cut the crew get's time to rest!! Good on ya!! Bud.
Just be careful guys!
Hope everyone will be excited about the new progress being made at the Museum!
Taking "Before" work starts photos tomorrow so you'll be able to watch the progress.
Sure wish I lived 1800 miles closer. I'm a great volunteer!
