Ye Ole Shingle Mill

Mel Bailey (one of the founders of our club) is shown here explaining to a group of grade school students the purpose and function of a shingle mill.

Here Mel is shown with Trevor Staab and his teacher, Linda Helman in front of the shingle mill. Each year the FAAFEA sets aside two days of our Apple and Arts show to bring in children from local school districts in order to educate them about how their ancestors farmed, worked and raised their families.
