Barn finale

Schumacher Farm Park’s Center for Rural History is complete, thanks to a number of volunteers who applied the finishing touches. Shown are Tim McConely, Ray Ropers, Bill Erickson, Jim Ableidinger and Dennis Petzke, who with the help of Dale Otradovec, Steve Robinson and Bruce Hoesley, recently stained and installed insulation board and tongue and groove ash boards. The ash lumber came from the City of Madison after the trees were cut down due to the Emerald Ash Borer. The Madison Community Foundation donated $3,500 toward this project. The community is invited to a grand opening July 14 from 4-7 p.m.
