Shop Trailer continued from page 1.
We talked about purchase price and repair cost, since Jock had told me that the trailer needed some repair. Later the Director Rod Meyer, and his wife Maryann, traveled to Dempsey's Forge to look the trailer over in person. Rod was even more excited when he came back to town. At a meeting of the board of Trustees held Monday, 8 June 1998, Rob presented the idea to the Board. They voted to go ahead with the acquisition, and to supply the money to buy the materials for the restoration. I will use the trailer to travel to area schools, demonstrating blacksmithing using tools and techniques suitable for the time frame 1753 - 1763.

No man labors in vain who leaves something for the future.

Jock did not labor in vain!
