Renewing the Chandelier

Old First has this magnificent chandelier. We lowered it a couple weeks ago (a complicated process requiring steel cables, a geared windlass, and a number of ropes) in order to clean it and change the bulbs. Then we built scaffolding around it in order to reach its higher parts. Working in these pictures are Michael, Daniel, Rachel, William, and Christina. Photos are by William and Michael.

Wow! I would love to see this someday. Hope you are both well and thriving. Always, Marcia

Well Marcia, you definitely should. And we are well and thriving, yes. Marcia, it's been ten years! Amazing huh?
