On its way to Colorado

Work crews were out enthusiastically disassembling the historic barn located on what was the Gary Forman farm just west of Lauman Road — adjacent to the high school ball diamonds. The careful and exacting project involving the slow by steady deconstruction of the barn, labeling of each and every board, loading on a flatbed, and shipping to Colorado, will result in the reconstruction of a new structure in Salida, Colo. — headquarters for the Rivers of Recovery veterans’ rehabilitation project. The project is a cooperative effort of Forman, Rivers Of Recovery director Dan Cook, and Nestle Waters North America. Work was somewhat hassled early on by blustery winds, but the labor of love continued nevertheless, and crews expect to have the barn loaded and ready to go by April 27. Shown is the barn first in it’s fully constructed state two weeks ago, and later after a couple days work over the weekend.
