Contestants come from asfar away as Canada, Australia, and New Zealand to compete in the lumberjack festivities, which are held the third weekend in August. In addi-tion to the Woodsmens contest on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, there are displays of various forestry related equipment, covering a wide varietyof interests from the professional logger to the occasional firewood cutter.The primary goals of the Woodsmens Field Days are promotion of the forest industry in general, and in keeping with the intent of Rev. Reed, thelumberjack in particular, a vanishing breed of men. With these goals in mind we felt what better way to do so than establish a forum on the Infor-mation Super Highway (the World Wide Web in particular), there by making related information available to anyone, any time, any place.For more information visit: 18, 2012—Walk To End Alzheimer’s8:30 am to 11 am—Sackets Harbor Central School District, 215 S.
