When the tank is filled with water it will be the first time the building will have a source of safe, drinkable water. In the past, water had to be brought in containers for making coffee and punch.
The members of the Fraser Grange built the kitchen onto the building when they moved in. They would be very proud of the decision by the board members to upgrade the building. They would also want to thank everyone who has supported the fundraisers to make this remodel a possibility.
The Stemrich crew also installed the septic tank and the leach field.

Playmate was born to their mare, Whisper My Name Mister. She is a palomino withy four white socks and
a blaze on her face.
The new colt isn’t the only baby on the farm; they now have eight ducklings. Do you remember the story of the baby house duck named Peeps? She thought she was a human because she lived in the house.
