had taken its toll on the chimney at the Mallard Bay clubhouse.
Constructed at least 32 years ago, cracks developed in the mortar
inviting rain water in.
Over time, the water froze, then expanded
and produced more cracks, threatening eventual collapse.
An expert in repairing damaged mortar was
hired to return the chimney to its intended new condition. Without
having to replace any of the stones, he has managed to seal the cracks
and leave the chimney looking like it was built yesterday.
It is expected the job will be completed
October 31, in plenty of time for use by the guy in the red suit.
Many thanks go to Gary Yordy
and Ted Hobson for getting the ball rolling on this
