CK Birkenfeld Trail Dedication Event – Photo Gallery

We are pleased to announce the opening of the trail! A grant from the Birkenfeld Fund by way of the Seattle Foundation made this possible. A group of invitees were present for a ribbon-cutting, trail tour and luncheon. We offer our thanks to everyone who attended, and to all the Board members and community members who worked hard on this trail!

Dipping 9,000 shingles with stain: Dip n’ Drip!

Quilcene “dip and drip” event at Worthington Park… Update: IT’S GOING GREAT!

We are coating the cedar shingles which are part of the new third floor finish. The shingles need to be dipped in finish, allowed to drip momentarily, back brushed, and placed on a drying rack. We truly need volunteers to help us accomplish this goal.

dip-n-drip1We have earned the bronze and now SILVER medals for dipping 2/3 of the 9000 shingles for the new mansard roof!

Don’t miss out on your opportunity to be a part of the beautiful mansard roof.

We work from 9 to 4 on Wednesdays and Saturdays. 3 days for drying. Work 1 or 2 hours or more. Whatever works for you! Doughnuts and coffee are provided. Some of us bring lunches. Hope to see you soon. ~ From your Quilcene Museum V.P. Cleone Telling

In the photo below: Eric and Jeremy from Nieman Construction teepeed shingles to dry for bay window roofing at Worthington House. Kathi, Carol, Marita and Cleone painted window trims for the mansard roof. Over 400 hours of volunteerism this summer!

Come join us as a part of the mansion’s history. Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Oh, we will have a ‘sip’, to go with that dip and drip, after we bring in the gold medal (all 9,000 shingles are coated) and we get together for a victory party.

So, on Wednesdays and Saturdays from nine a.m. to five p.m., please come by and take a one to two hour shift for this event, at the mansion. Such a deal – free parking, opportunity to meet new people, learn the skill of ‘dipping and dripping’ and bring in the ‘gold’ for the third floor mansard roof!

The work needs to be done now as the good weather is our guide. Wear your paint clothes.

Please call David Satterlee, the ‘dip and drip’ coordinator at 765-4810 for more information or just show up!

The game is on!
