IT'S OVER!!! Again, the buzzing of chainsaws has subsided...As I stated before 'Log Building" can be grueling at times, hard work, and with the added element of our Gabriola Spring weather, hot too- the work ethics were positive, outstanding, the craftsmanship was superb. The time really flew by this last four weeks and I am sad to see it end! This semester was chock full of energy, extreme talent and proficiency, integrated with great humor, strong bonds and many memorable moments. I will fondly think of these students and friends long after they have gone. They have left an imprint at ISBA and in the community.

Whatever you can do or dream you can; begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now. -Goethe
