There are times when everything goes just right

The people restoring the Freeman Railway Station to its original staTe – and then some got an offer they didn’t want to refuse.

But there were conditions:

Basement - towards the entrance - before diorama

Lower level will now be properly insulated.

Bob Jarvis Insulation had generously donated foamed in place insulation for the basement. They advised the Friends of Freeman Station yesterday that the work could be done today.

That meant removing the Tyvek air barrier from the walls, and moving some construction materials to the centre of the room.

Ron Danielson sent out the urgent call for help.

Ron Danielson explained that “If we could not do this, the date would be lost resulting in an indefinite delay in the project.”

The call went out yesterday for volunteers for a work party at 6:00 PM

Brian Aasgaard, John Mellow, Barb Plander, Joe Wyle, David Vollick and Ralph Malstrom all dropped whatever they were doing, changed their plans and rushed to the station.

The work was done and Jarvis Insulation is in the station doing the insulation right now.

Heartfelt thanks to these fine, dedicated and caring volunteers from all the Friends of Freeman Station for this great work – beyond the call of duty.
