You are invited to join us this coming Monday, August 11th, as
we shut-down our old furnace. The water-filling
should happen around 7:00PM; the only thing we can guarantee is

been heard before. This is not an official planned event, its
just an opportunity to come by and hang out.
The old furnace will be torn down completely starting on August
18th. The new furnace will be installed and should be
operational by the first week of September. During the 'down

you would like to help-out, drop us an email; there may be the
opportunity to take out some aggression with a sledgehammer.
