Fall Cleanup

About 15 folks showed up for our wet and dreary cleanup this morning. Thanks to Davids Drive 831 for the trailer & truck, Joe Sullivan for his truck and Ed Hennessey and daughter April for the making 2 trips to the compost site for us.
The rest of the crew worked on edging the new roadway with soil. Thanks to Elaine Matt for handling the gatehouse.
We got a lot accomplished today. Thanks to all.
