UPDATE! new construction exterior completed!...
The new pole barn was begun on 12/15. The exterior structure is done. The interior requires new concrete flooring, lighting and other critical steps which will take place in summer 2015.
The concrete floor, lighting and other key steps will not be completed until spring ... in time for the new year's crop of hay to be safely stored.
MASSIVE TRAGEDY AT CWER 7/19/2014:
There was a massive barn fire on 7/19/14. Mike, AnnMarie and Tory were in the loft stacking the last of 1500 bales of fresh cut, very dry hay, when a fire started. They were incredibly lucky to escape unhurt, and they and other volunteers rescued some equipment in an adjacent building. However, everything in the barn was engulfed in flames in moments and the building and all items in it are a complete loss. Thankfully, no humans or animals, and no other buildings were lost due to the exceptional work of the fire fighters.
Donations are graciously accepted as: checks via mail, paypal, visit and donate. (We pay the least fees if you send a check, but all types of donations are gladly accepted.)
Also a "go fund me" page was set up by one of our supporters: http://www.gofundme.com/bulsuw
MANY items will be needed in the coming months, and we will update with more info as soon as we are able to do so.
