September president’s message

Schoolhouse new wooden deck completed during summer

A picture is worth a thousand words and YOU made this happen.  Look what we did on your summer vacation!

 

President’s message

Your memberships, donations, volunteerism, bequests, and attendance at events like the 25TH Annual Covered Bridge Bike Tour, July 7TH, which was a smashing success, the upcoming Fallasburg Bazaar on Fallasburg Fall Festival of the Arts Weekend, September 14 & 15, and our Christmas Party, December 14th, make this possible.  Thank you for doing your part in preserving Fallasburg Village!

Our historic Schoolhouse concrete patio, like many things do when they get old, began to sag and settle.  Water was collecting and draining towards the building instead of away from it threatening foundation timbers and support infrastructure.

We needed to move forward with the project for fear if we waited, irreparable damage could be done.  Several bids were secured, but in the end after careful examination, we realized, with volunteer help and expertise, a couple of craftsman contractors to set stone and build the new wooden deck with entry stairs, we could get this done and be open in time for the Fallasburg Bazaar on Fall Festival of the Arts weekend, September 14 & 15.

Maintaining a historic village does demand the skills of a General Contractor.  Alan Rumbaugh, FHS Treasurer, has performed magnificently on our behalf.  With his contacts, and building renovation know-how, he’s guided the work with a steady hand.  David Cadwallader and his crew, including wife Tina, FHS Vice President, spearheaded the removal phase of the old concrete patio, deftly piloting the Bobcat and loading the dumpster.  Jack Miedema, our stone mason, reconfigured and reset the stone wall to accommodate the carpentry.  Ken Rasmus engineered a beautiful new pressure treated wooden deck and entry stairs while also adding some drainage and foundation water protection features underneath.  Villager, Ron Dawson, undertook the re-welding and retro-fitting of the existing iron railing onto the new patio expertly.  Jack of all trades, Frank Brechbiel has done a little bit of everything along the way on this much like he does in the village year-round.  Adding an exclamation point to the whole project; we were able to keep our concrete ADA compliant Wheelchair Ramp undisturbed, and integrate the former central concrete entry steps at the end of the patio.  Come take a look.  You’ll be proud of the work you’ve done.

The Fallasburg Historical Society Bazaar I keep mentioning is Saturday & Sunday, September 14 & 15, 10:00AM – 5:00PM.  Our bazaar features an old- fashioned collection of artisans and their crafts under tent just across the Flat River and Fallasburg Covered Bridge from the Fallasburg Fall Festival of the Arts.  We have over 20 vendors signed up this year.  This grassroots event just keeps growing and growing.

Local author Emma Palova will have a book signing of her new book “Secrets” at the one-room schoolhouse on Sept. 14 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday Sept. 15 from 1 p.m. to five p.m.

Stop by for an autograph in the historical ambience of the schoolhouse.

Christmas is coming… “Christmas in Fallasburg”, A Community Celebration! Saturday, December 14, 6:00PM-8:00PM, music and merriment at the Fallasburg Schoolhouse, a phenomenal fire in Fallas Field follows!  You’re invited!

For more information on the Fallasburg Historical Society, membership, donations, etc., the Fallasburg  Bazaar, and “Christmas in Fallasburg,” go to:  www.fallasburg.org

Enjoy the Fall,

Ken Tamke, President
