Today a group of intrepid Model T Museum volunteers held a work party to saw lumber for the next phase of construction at the Museum!

Thank you to Dan Conder who hauled his totally awesome Wood-Mizer portable saw mill to Jerry Kramer's farm where Dan, Jerry, Mark Atkins, Jamie Maxwell, Rod Smalley, Lowell Robinson, and Benny and Patty Young worked all day. Although a few degrees warmer than it has been, it was still cold at 23 degrees in the morning and reaching only the mid-30s in the afternoon.

THANK YOU to all! It's only because of our Members, VolunTeers, and Supporters that the Museum is what it is today.

At the risk of making others envious for not being able to join the fun, here's some videos and photos from the "Sawing Party"! And remember that if you and/or your Chapter members are ever interested in helping with work parties at the Museum, please contact us!

I saw the post over on the MTFCA Facebook page - looks like everyone was working hard ....... then I clicked on the video link that supposedly showing Mr. Kramer at work ..... all I saw was a guy eating a Hot Fudge Ice Cream Sundae

As club members, we all owe these dedicated individuals, too numerous to mention by name, a huge debt of gratitude and a heartfelt THANK YOU
for all you've done, are doing, and will no doubt be doing. THANK YOU! I've met some of you in person and you're all the greatest.

FJ, Ice cream wasn’t on the menu. Too cold. Although it did warm up to about 36 by the time we finished. We now have the materials to finish several projects in the Annex, hopefully in time for the National Tour in July.

Jerry,

It was 75 degrees here in Tucson yesterday.

Looking forward to The National Tour & Homecoming.

Say Hello to Miss Kim & Mr. Cosmo .... :-)
