    Have to leave the house around 5 am to be at work before 6, and I forgot to post them yesterday (and when I was much more alert than at 4:39 am this morning)

    Looking like next Sunday (Nov 11th) is a go. We will try to clean up the woodyard and then attack the big log pile as time permits. Denny does not know we are doing this so keep it on the down low if you have contact with him in the next week. That means that we will be on our own for lunch. Mary is making a roaster of her famous chili and we will provide the fixins for that. Bring along what you want to drink and maybe some break time goodies and we should be good to go!

    Calling an audible for Sunday. Seeing it will be unseasonably cool I think we'll head to the Log Cabin Store in Danbury for lunch. I'll bring some air pots with coffee for break time and maybe a 55 gallon barrel to make a fire in for warmth.

    Did a driveby at Denny's today. About 3/4 of the wood we cut has been stacked and the misc pile is still a mess...........

    And just enough snow to be a PITA...............

    Anyone attending make sure you have a few extra pairs of gloves

    Great job today by great people! Got everything that was not in the log piles cut, split, and sorted. We attempted to do this without Denny knowing-but he and Barb returned about 20 minutes before we were finished. He was very surprised and very grateful to ALL of us who have helped with the wood we have processed for this winter and for what we have done for next year. When we were sweating it out in September I would never of guessed that only 8 weeks later that we have gotten so much done for this great charity! I sometimes feel like I'm always setting dates to cut and then expecting you to show up. Everyone who has helped are truly great assets to this operation and I am honored to call you my friends.

    UPDATE FROM INTERFAITH

    The Interfaith Board has authorized the purchase of a new 5X10 single axle hydraulic dump trailer for Denny to use for his firewood deliveries. This coupled to his newly purchased used truck should hopefully make his work much easier! We have started a fundraising campaign to help pay for the trailer and I'm happy to say that the Dresser Lions Club has pledged $1000.00 towards the cost of the trailer. If anyone would like to contribute (or know someone who would) checks can be made directly to Interfaith Caregivers of Burnett County. A note in the memo line that it's for the heat a home trailer fund will will get the money in the correct hands. Thanks again to all who help this great charity and I hope your Thanksgiving Day has been a great one with your families and friends. WGP

    Hi Just wanted to let everyone know that I have submitted a grant request for Interfaith Caregivers (Heat-a-Home) Project through my work. I work for Weyerhaeuser and they have a large funding program for local charities for employees. We should know in a week or two if the grant request is accepted and funded. I will let you know as soon as I do. Fingers crossed that we receive a grant and can help support the trailer project!

    Weather permitting we would like to "work the woodpile" one more time before the Christmas Holiday. Shooting for Dec 9th-again if mother nature approves. The size of the crew will dictate if we cut and split logs too big for the cutting stand or set the stand up and cut that way. I believe Denny and Barb would like to spread some Holiday Cheer among us for all that we have done in 2018.

    Gingrsnap has set up a fundraiser for Giving Tuesday through FaceBook. FaceBook and Pay Pal are matching funds up to 7 Mil today only. You can find the donation site at this link.
    https://www.facebook.com/donate/363836330847993/?fundraiser_source=external_url

    This would be specifically for the Dump Trailer and a great way to get it funded.

    Looks like Sunday Dec 9th is a go to hit the woodpile one more time. SSDD-breakfast in Siren at 0700 then off to the woodpile. Denny is chomping at the bit to show off his new trailer!
