What a day we had.  I thought only a few people would show up to help remove the old floor to make way for our new floor- boy was I wrong.  Eight am and twenty five people showed up!  Within 4 hours amidst a storm of dust and noise that would rival any jet engine, the old floor was totally removed.  Check out the photos that Michael Van der Porten took.  So now we are left with a pile of wood in the front of the hall- a pile of memories, years of polish from dancers feet.  A few people have taken some of the flooring to make such things as a new dance floor for their home, musical instruments, trivets, picture frames, etc.  You are more then welcome to the flooring but you better be quick.
