As they say, picture is worth a thousand words.. well in this case it’s a nice little chart: I’d like to thank all of you for making this happen and I hope...

3rd International Day of the LumberJock

06-12-2009 09:19 PM by Martin Sojka | 25 comments »

As Debbie mentioned in the latest eMag, we have declared June 12th as The International Day of the LumberJock. This happened in 2007 when we reached 1,000 members, just 2 years ago.
