   Things are still coming together, and as more details of the evening's events unfold, we'll be sure to keep you posted.  Hope to see you all there!

Governor Dick Trail 15 cleanup.... PDF Print E-mail

Hello everyone,
I am quite pleased to announce that the multi-use trails at Governor Dick are open and mostly cleared of trees / branches / debris.  Amazingly, with Matt McElheny and Brad Ditzler operating the chain saws we were able to clear trail #15.  Additional volunteers cleared the cut trees and branches working together like a finely oiled machine.  Also, a small re-route was completed.  Special thanks to:  Janie Gockley, Sarah Shirk, Michael Cina, Steve Mongold, Brad Ditzler, Matt McElheny and to our neighboring tree pro Jim Eppley for lending us his 24" saw that my hubby Matt handled like a pro. 
I am also pleased to say there is no need to schedule a work day for July 3rd or the 10th.  Everyone enjoy the holiday weekend and be safe.
Desiree and Matt
