Three volunteer blacksmiths from Empire Mine HP create a work of art.

A popular item was a free ring, fresh off the anvil.  "Beaver Cleaver" shows off his.

Bridgeport history expert Chuck Scimeca checks history with an old timer in the ranger office.

Phyllis Kingsford with her arm around her grandfather Alfred Kneebone (played by Howard Voshell).
Phyllis is not playing a role -- she's the real deal.

It was wonderful to chat with Phyllis about her playing at the gas station when she was a little girl.

The day is winding down as Volunteers George Case, Donna Brown, and Howard Voshell rest at the gas station.

Volunteer Judy Nichols joins in later with a kiss for Howard.

Howard isn't complaining!
