Our 2019 Lumber Open House | All Bark, Some Bites

October 8, 2019

Our 2019 lumber open house this past Saturday was a hit! We opened our doors to the communities of Fairfield and Hamilton, raising $500 for Animal Friends Humane Society (AFHS) in Hamilton, OH (@animalfriendshumanesociety) plus a wonderful amount of item donations.

All of the item donations atop our M. Bohlke Corp. flatbed. We saw lots of cat and dog food, treats and toys, paper towels, new towels, litter, puppy pads, cleaning supplies and office supplies for the AFHS staff.

The $500 was raised from our Walnut live edge raffle… and our winner is Brooklyn Pierce. Congrats to Brooklyn and family!

Brooklyn’s grandfather is a woodworker and they have a few ideas in mind already. They are leaning toward a desk or shelving for trophies. Brooklyn is browsing live edge slab projects for inspiration and expressed interest in working together with her Grandpa once they pick a project.. or two.

Special thank you to Trooper and family from The Trooper Telegraph (@thetroopertelegraph) for being apart of our event. 🐾

During our open house, the M. Bohlke Lumber team gave tours of our warehouses where we store our imported square edge, live edge slabs, boules and more.
Our visitors enjoyed trying Hammerschlagen, a nail driving challenge with German roots.
Our team was kept busy playing Hammerschlagen all throughout the open house.
Families enjoyed corn hole, Hammerschlagen, visiting with Trooper and the Golden Goose food truck.

Thank you to everyone who came to see us at M. Bohlke Lumber and for your support!
