Ripsaws to Rafters rescheduled July 7, 14
Ollie Skurdahl's "Ripsaws to Rafters" has been rescheduled to July 7 and 14 after being postponed due to extreme temperatures on June 9. Skurdahl will tell a history of logging in two sessions. Part one will be given on Wednesday, July 7 and part two will be given on Wednesday, July 14. Both programs will begin at 7 p.m. at the Crosslake Historic Log Village Learning Livery. Urdahl will lead an imaginary walk with into the virgin forests around Cross Lake that in 1890 touched the sky with the sound of ripsaws cutting into the massive white and red pine trees and which would crack just before the shouts of "timber" from the lumberjacks. This program is sponsored by the Crosslake Area Historical Society. Admission of $5 will be charged.
