Last spring Graham and I went out to Oregon to visit during the winter weather. We plan to move there in about 18 months when Sam heads off to college and Graham can retire. Focusing on the Willamette Valley, we explored a number of towns and discovered this wonderful project that will still be ready for our help when we get there.
A group of people have begun the process to produce a fantastic carousel. Expected to be completed about 4 years from now, it will contain 52 fantastic creatures. Volunteers from the community are helping with the carving, sanding and painting and a local car dealer is providing the high gloss finish.
Living in a place where a grassroots community activity has caught fire and will produce something for the benefit of all is wonderful.
