Restoration and Preservation
As part of our mandate, we preserve and restore equipment on a regular basis.
All HCEA Canada artifacts are donated. The restoration & maintenance is carried out at the SCM and at private residences of our membership. Supplies are most often donated & all labour is donated. Transportation of machinery during initial recovery & moving of machinery to events is achieved through donation of services wherever possible.
Our club has a weekly “Work Party” at the SCM on Tuesdays beginning at 10am and we go until dark. Special event work days are noted on our Event List. Interested parties can contact us for details if interested in joining the maintenance group.The “combined fleet” care & maintenance falls under this jurisdiction. Several days are spent each spring & fall to prepare for service & winterize the fleet. It’s a big job to preserve the largest fleet of it’s kind in Canada !
