Our first work day for the R&R event, fire wood!

We had a very successful day at the upper park concerning the supply of fire wood.

Many hands made little work, well, there was still lots of work but we had many hands! Having access to the Park’s truck and log-splitter took care of the ‘horse power’ end of things. Our volunteer personnel got things done. There was a crew working the chainsaws, a crew to drive all of the trucks around the property to pick up cut wood a crew to operate the log splitter and a kitchen crew to keep us going. One of our greatest helps was in the form of a group of young men brought to the Park from the Youth Challenge Academy, based out of Ft. Dix. N.J. The young men really did most of the heavy lifting. They stacked the large cut trees in the trucks, unloaded them for splitting and then stacked all of the cut wood, neatly in the Thompson Neely House. HUZZAH!
We will be returning to finish splitting the remaining logs, but we have a great jump on the fire wood. situation. Thanks to all of the 5th PA members, others and the Y.C. Academy for all of the hard work.
