Rain and mud made for a fun, wet session

On March 12th we had a great group of volunteers brave the rain to help us build a replacement section of trail. The existing trail laid too low on the terrain and collected water too easily. This new connector lies further up the hill and will be much better about draining rainwater.

Muddy characters.

Again we had delicious homemade soup delivered for lunch, a group effort by Roger and Leslie Estep and their friend Brenda Johnston. We can’t thank them enough for doing that. Nothing is better than hot soup and cornbread while working in the rain! Be sure to check out Leslie’s recipe for Spicy Peanut Soup.

Thank you to all the volunteers who joined us!
