On March 25th, we had a very successful meeting of folks in the blacksmith shop at Williams Grove Historical Steam Engine Association in Pennsylvania. Both beginner and intermediate skills/information was shared with attendees.

Please PM me with your email address if you wish to be added to list for updates to what is happening at the Blacksmith Shop at Williams Grove Historical Steam Engine Association.

 Blacksmith group meetings at the Williams Grove Blacksmith shop are planned for last Sunday of each month.

(Please to not use the forge before you pay dues for the Williams Grove Association and sign their release form.) We will be developing an additional release form for smiths.

 Stay tuned for any updates.

William Smith has already asked his boss to be off on  
Sunday, May 20th so that he can volunteer at the forge as he did last year.

He said that he would really appreciate it if he could be one of the 
demonstrators on that date.
