Pole delivery helps Lawrence Museum
POLES were flying high at Lawrence on Wednesday as Blanchard's Transport delivered a stack of poles from Koppers Wood Products to Lawrence Museum.
The poles will be used to construct the frame of the new shed the Lawrence Historical Society is constructing at the rear of the museum building.
When approached about the possibility of purchasing second-hand poles for the shed, Rick Tranter, business development manager, Koppers Wood Products, was only too pleased to help out. They offered to provide new poles at no cost to the museum, and talked with Blanchards Transport, who offered to deliver them, also at no cost.
"Koppers is big on community support, and saw this as a good opportunity to support the local community. We are very pleased to be able to contribute to this project," Rick said.
"It is a huge help for us and we very much appreciate the donation of the poles and delivery from Blanchards," said museum vice-president Roz Jones.
"We have been fundraising for the past year to start the building. The site is now prepared and awaiting the concrete slab. The poles will be a great feature in the new shed, which will house larger exhibits, including rural and river historical items."
