We had an awesome volunteer turnout for our trail work this past weekend! We had a total of
19 volunteers, some working both weekends! Each day we met at the Upper Valley Grill at 9 a.m. and worked until around 3 p.m.
On Saturday, November 18th, the weather was cold and windy. Thirteen volunteers worked to clear the railroad
bed trails from the Upper Valley Grill to CA 1. Thank you Mark DuBois, Toby Rock,
Fran Pare, Fran Budgen, Steve Arnold, Taylor Lamberton, Gary Lamberton, Kevin McDonnell, Lyle Johnson, Emily Rae, Tom Kudlacik,
Roarke and Jeff.
On Sunday, November 19th, mother nature threw rain, sleet and snow flurries
at us before clearing up, though temperatures stayed around 35-40 degrees. And still we had 11 volunteers helping to
clear the railroad bed from where it crosses Rt 232 near Kettle Pond North to the next junction at Lanesboro, CA 12.
Then we moved on to clear Corridor 2 towards New Discovery parking lot. A couple of big trees had to be taken down,
and the trail was widened by focusing on clearing the sides. Thank you Dan Cwirka,
Anthony D'Addario, Wayne Vetre, KC Craig, Amanda Joy, Josh Patterso, Emily Rae, Tom Kudlacik, Gary Lamberton, Taylor Lamberton, Kevin McDonnell!
