132) Squires Tavern work party

132)  Squires Tavern work party - December 19, 2001
                 Volunteers stacked brick on the porch and removed nails from damaged clapboards and stored the clapboards in the wood shed for woodstove fuel. Walt and Dave go to Shutesbury, MA to pick up a load of radially sawn pine clapboards to replace damaged clapboards on the Tavern.  Mill owner Fred Johnson gave a wonderful tour of the mill and the machinery obtained from an old water powered mill which he uses to make clapboards from native pine.  Fred is very well known in the restoration field and ships custom work all over the U.S.
