The June 28th wind storm that hit much of Lyman County damaged several structures under construction at the new Wheat Growers facility at Kennebec and caused a short set back as repairs were made. But, workers have made up for lost time and now according to John Kroll, construction manager with Wheat Growers the project is back on schedule.
Concrete forms are being assembled on the east side of the grain barn for the storage silos that will be poured next week at the new Wheat Growers facility at Kennebec.
