Steam Dept. Workday Schedule for 2008

Dates have been set for the WPRM Steam Department 2008 Work Days:

April 10th – 12th
July 30th- August 2nd
October 23rd – 25th

The boiler is our main concern this year. We will work toward removal of the remaining tubes and flues and continue cleanup of the boiler shell interior and exterior. There are lots of other tasks that can be accomplished at any time. Check with Charlie Spikes and he will point you in the right direction. Jobs at every skill level are available!

Remember that 165 lapel pins and Steam Dept. 2008 calendars are available online and through the Museum gift shop, it’s a great way to show your support for the Steam Program.

If you think you will be able to make any of the above dates please RSVP to me at: wpsteam@wplives.org . If you are planning to stay at the Museum I will need to arrange your space in the Edenwold in advance. Also feel free to contact me at any time for any additional info on the workdays.

Have a safe and prosperous 2008! - JCA
