Friends of the Wissahickon makes progress on warming shed at Valley Green

Philadelphia—November 2011—Volunteers from the Friends of the Wissahickon (FOW) Structures Crew are making great progress with the reconstruction of the Warming Shed at Valley Green, which burned down in October of 2010 due to an electrical fire during a rain storm. Crew leader Mike Souders estimates that the shed will be finished by the Spring of 2012.

The Pennsylvania Equine Council and FOW organized the “Ride to Rebuild” in November 2010  that raised over $8,000 toward the estimated construction cost of $20,000. Members from Courtesy Stable in Roxborough, Monastery Stable in Mount Airy, and Northwestern Stable in Chestnut Hill all participated in the fundraising effort, as well as riders from New Jersey, Harrisburg, and York.
