Thanks to you all, the shops, station, grounds and displays were cleaned, cleared, swept, organized and washed.
The full force of the "organized mayhem" by noon had filled the garbage bin to capacity with refuse from around the site.
Master equipment operator Don in the tractor made many, many trips to the burn pile, tie pile and scrap metal bin.
Batteries, oil barrels, pallets, boxes, crates, bags, pails, cans........you name it ....it were found, collected and removed.
For some, it was "father and son" teams that took on the challenge, prevailed and moved on to more projects. Individuals, team work, we had it all in different forms and capacities, all-in-all, a very good day.
Participants were many, travelling distances from far and wide, The season opening and Members Day come Friday, May 17th will be a success because of Volunteers like you.
Thanks to: Don W, Ted V, Jamie M, Barry C, Jim S, John B, Hans H, Phil H, Nathan G, Fred P, Brad R, Dave M, Dave H, Judy W, Irene D, Herb D and the crew members of the CSV's.
Father and son teams of Stephen Y and son, Ken J and son and of course myself and son Barry W.
Other tasks accomplished for our opening were the track inspection by Niale S and the car/coach inspection completed by Ray M. We are ready for the summer.
Again, many thanks to all.
Kudos also go out to the gift shop crew for their behind the scenes, undercover work of organizing the gift shop, putting price tags on everything, and putting out the stock.
The gift shop is the visitor's first stop at the Museum, and as such it makes a huge impression on the visitor. Great work by Gloria, Cathy, Irene, and Judy. Next time you're in, check out the floors.
