A work party is being formed to assist the daughters of a long time ODHFS member, B.D.Ladd, of Mineral, Va. There are 6 fire trucks at BD’s home place and 2 of them are buried in a barn and need to be “dug out”. Three of them are outside and need to have vegetation growth cleaned from around them. The barn is packed full of miscellaneous stuff such as furniture, lumber, various equipment, a car, motorcycle, etc. The barn needs to be gone through & organized. There is some fire equipment and the family is interested in selling some of the items. The fire trucks are all listed on the ODHFS web site classifieds. There are many items that need to be cleared out from around the trucks so that they will roll and be accessible to whoever buys them.
The date for the work party will be Saturday, November 5, 2016. Time will be around 9:30 – 4 or 5 depending on how much we get done.
Location is 5797 Fredericks Hall Road, Mineral, Va. Take Route #522 to Mineral. At the Mineral fire station, if coming on #522 from the north, turn left onto Fredericks Hall Road, from the south, keep straight in front of the fire house, go 3-4 miles on the right.
