SUMMER 2019, Knight Foundry Visitor Review

“We visited the foundry yesterday and took the tour. It was fantastic! The way you have it arranged let us take our time and get answers to any questions we had. You have a great group of well informed and friendly docents that made us feel as if we were talking with old friends. They were all enthusiastic about the foundry and machine shop and it showed that they cared a lot about it. You are certainly blessed to have volunteers of this caliber. We will tell our friends about you. Thank you – Chris & Gail”
