Lumberjack day in upper NY

NICHOLVILLE, NY
5-17-2013

A wintry Saturday in March saw the parish of St. Therese's Church in Nicholville, New York return to its north country roots with a lumberjack work day attended by about 45 men and boys.

An entire Saturday was given to felling carefully selected and marked trees on the property owned by the church, while tractors of all sizes dragged or carried the logs out of the woods. Younger boys joyfully followed the good example of the fathers and older brothers by helping to drag brush and split, and stack wood.

A satisfying breakfast and hearty dinner were provided by the women of the parish, with hot chocolate and hot coffee being available all day. A total of 60 face chord was harvested and subsequently distributed to parishioners. Another lumberjack work day is anticipated, with the added project of marking maple trees to be used in a potential parish sugaring operation.
