Re-roofing begins

Three Ramona roofers and their workers start taking the roof off the historic Verlaque House on the grounds of the Guy B. Woodward Museum, 645 Main St., on Monday morning. The project is expected to take a week and a half. Ramona Pioneer Historical Society held a fundraising drive to pay for the much-needed re-roofing. Working on the project are John Schwaesdall of Schwaesdall Roofing and Repairs, Jack Schwaesdall of Schwaesdall Roofing, Ray Hosley of Ray Hosley Roofing, and Jose Gomez, Jose Montes, Robert Bruce, Larry Miller and Billy Holland. They cleaned and re-secured the gutters Monday and replaced some wood because of dry rot, said John Schwaesdall. The project required a county permit and a county inspector must OK it to consider it complete. Historical society members hope all will be ready for the Verlaque House’s 125th Birthday Celebration at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5.  Sentinel photo/Nancy Stegon
