Highlights from Millbrook Village Days 2001!

  Back by popular demand, although a bit slow to hit the internet. We've culled the latest batch of pictures to showcase the talents of our members. Some are even action shots (at least that's what the dude handling the camera said, but it may just be blurred images). In the case of Bob Demarest's picture, I'm a bit surprised to see that his hands are around his tools and wood rather than a sausage sandwich. As I looked through the photos, a pattern emerged. Each of our volunteers was putting on their own show. So, I've assigned endearing titles for each. Enjoy! By the way, if you wish to see a larger version of the picture, click on each picture.

"The Big Cider Squeeze" starring the Briggs' family squeezers.

"Ding Dong Song at the Blacksmith Shop" with interested onlookers.

The photographer couldn't squeeze his way in to take a photo of any hammer dinging. Maybe next year.

"Coping with Chaos" with Bob Demarest. Even in a still photo, you can see the shear velocity of his tools. You'll also note that he's found the lowest spot in the building to carry out his craft (he's afraid of heights). Arnie Buza is turning his critical eye to Bob's work.
