It's Chainsaw Time!

As part of our 2006 Charitable Giving Program, Vintage Tub & Bath sponsored chainsaw safety training for our local Rails to Trails volunteers. Our Rails to Trails path goes through some heavily wooded areas and, occasionally, the trail gets blocked by fallen trees. Robert Skulsky, Executive Director of the Greater Hazleton Area Civic Partnership (GHACP), picks up the story:

"Again, thank you, and Vintage Tub & Bath for your generosity and concern for our area by funding this training. We had nine people trained and they will be the only ones allowed to use chainsaws on the Greater Hazleton Rails to Trails (GHRT). The course stressed safety and that was the paramount reason that we wanted our volunteers to have it. The volunteers again showed their spirit by donating a full weekend to receive the training so they can continue to make a difference by volunteering."

The images below are from the training session. Vintage Tub & Bath appreciates the efforts of the Rails to Trails volunteers to maintain and expand our local trail! Keep up the good work!
