To the Times of Ti:
The Penfield Homestead Museum would like to thank all the people in Crown Point and surrounding communities that came together to help us during and after tropical storm Irene.
Specifically thanks to:
Bob Patnode for driving to Lewis during the storm to pick up sand bags.
Fran and Betty Pertak for donating the sand and providing a place to fill the sand bags.
All those who helped fill sand bags, transport them to Ironville, and place them around the pond.
Fred French for trucking two loads of clay for use at the dam.
Richard Fortier for bringing over his backhoe to help with placing the clay.
Dominic Fontana, DEC, and Mark Buckley, professional dam engineer, for giving us timely direction on what steps should be taken to lower the pond level and to procure necessary permits.
Riznick construction for providing equipment and Carl Ross for operating the excavator for several days.
Don Jaquish, Essex County Emergency Services, for supplying a flatbed for transporting sand bags and for letting us make use of NY-ALERT to keep people informed.
Your help and support are greatly appreciated.
Penfield Board of Directors
