Our thanks to Darrell Cherniske of Kent Greenhouse and Gardens.  Darrell did an amazing job getting the heirloom apple orchard ready for winter.  The trees never looked better!  Thank you from all of us on the board of directors of the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum.

 

Pilots and Eric Sloane

Reflecting today on the number pilots who have spoken to us about their appreciation for the early work of Eric Sloane in the areas of meteorology and flying. More than one pilot has told us a story about how he used what he learned from an Eric Sloane book to help him be a better pilot.

Eric Sloane would have loved this!

Some photos of the exceptional work by blacksmith Radames Ramos.  Rad has become a staple at our events at the Eric Sloane Museum this year and was kind enough to share some experiences he has had learning the art of the blacksmith.  Little did we know that he was going to bring us some examples of his work that we can use for the cabin restoration.  Rad’s workmanship is excellent and we are honored to have him as part of our restoration team.  Thanks, Rad!
