Tim Barros measures a piece of wood for ceiling restoration efforts on the old Foltz School House off of Route 8 south of Slippery Rock Saturday.

Donated labor went into installing donated lumber in the latest Foltz School restoration.

Seven carpenters, five journeymen and two apprentices, from the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters that covers Butler, Beaver and Allegheny counties, began installing a new ceiling in the one-room schoolhouse near the Old Stone House on Route 8 in Brady Township.

Eric Dixon of Boyers, the council representative said, “One of our members, Matt Martin, who lives in Boyers, is involved in the group that deals with the Jennings Environmental Education Center.

“He's the one who brought the information to the council and we mobilized to see what we could do,” said Dixon.

This is an excerpt of a story that appears in Wednesday's Butler Eagle.
