Nineteen Cherrydale Kindergarteners from Kelly Foit’s class visited Nathaniel Orr’s wagon shop on April 11 to learn about Orr and all the tools stored therein: bellows for the forge, drills, saws, hammers, nails, etc even tops. [See photo gallery below]. Everyone had a good time, including the Chaperones. Best of all were the “bouncy buggy rides” provided by Buzz Brake, Wagon Shop Docent. A good time was had by all. After a thrilling, time-packed half hour they continued with a tour to the Post Office.
