First an update on the road:

They are working on the bridges. The project deadline has moved to December 1st. The contractors will be done with the bridges sometime in October however, Toledo Edison then needs to re-run the electric under the bridge. The guard rails will then be installed and finally inspected before the bridges are open for travel. I know this is not what any of us had planned on, but that is what we have to deal with.

With that being said and the amount of equipment here, I think the Friends should plan on having the fall meetings at another location. As far as the holiday open house, we should be open by then. The December 1st date is a very forgiving deadline, unless something unexpected happens. We will know more as construction continues. Just wanted you to be aware of what is going on.
