Just look at the attached picture and enjoy the sight! If you ever grew up with a sandbox filled with plastic bulldozers and cranes, then you will find pleasure in the lifesize versions here at First Reformed Church. The picture shows a drill rig that made a hole twenty feet deep for the installation of a groundwater well at the site of our former oil tank. The well will provide data on groundwater contamination and is mandated by Department of Environmental Protection.
Originally, we had prepared for a much larger rig, but various circumstances forced the company, PREFERRED TANK SERVICES, to reconsider. This had the added side effect that coordination with MASONRY PRESERVATION GROUP, our general contractor, became much easier — MPG’s scaffolding was no longer in the way.
I thought to myself, “Where did they teach this at seminary?” I must have spoken out loud, for Brian Housted, MPG’s foreman, grinned and said, “We all know you skipped that class!”
