The Timber Bridge

We run an alumni network of past employees. During some floods, a timber bridge split. We don't build timber bridges any more so we don't have the skills (we don't even have the timber). But this time we needed a quick fix. So we put the word out and some retired engineers volunteered to help. We used 2 crews in repairing the bridge (and cutting down a couple of local trees to do it). One crew was the retired guys. And one was some of our current people. Not only did we fix the bridge but got some skills transfer too.
