On Saturday, August 21, Board members and Museum staff cleaned out the Firehall and a good portion of the Armstrong building – a job long overdue.
Anything that could be re-used or re-purposed at the museum was returned to the buildings for future use. Truck loads of old and damaged items went to the Cut Knife Transfer Station along with any recyclables. There was even a trunk full of old paint cans for Sarcan.
At the end of the day, items that still had life left in them were lined up beside the Firehall. The word went out on social media that ‘free stuff’ was here for the taking. Before we knew it, the ancient auditorium chairs and strings of Christmas lights, the scrap wood and garden hoses, extension cords and lighting fixtures, had found new homes.
