Following a fast food lunch, we will tour the nearby Appalachian Timber Services to observe the manufacture of railroad ties and mine timbers. We will return to Huntington on the evening of September 6.
For these tours, you will need long pants, closed toe shoes, safety glasses, hard hat and ear protection.
You will only miss one day of work from your school, Thursday, September 6. The county has approved a substitute for that day.
Please let Karen (firstname.lastname@example.org) know whether you can go. Her telephone number is 304-528-5011. She will need to know your availability no later than noon on August 22. Karen needs to make arrangements for van rentals, lodging and food as well as informing our hosts at Weyerhaeuser and Appalachian Timber Services of an expected number of visitors.
