Challenging Weather, Great Volunteers (10/10/15)…

On October 10th we had challenging weather, but “as always” great volunteers. Below you’ll see the crew we started with, with a few arriving later. Of the thirteen (13) volunteers two were new; Charlie Kim and Eli Samuel Winslow, and we had two returning from years past – Nikki and Kyle Klinger.

We’re beginning to believe this is going to be a rebuilding year for us. The balance of the attendees represent our new core group. We need to grow our volunteer numbers to achieve the goals we’ve set for the upcoming year…

In this second image (below) you’ll see our crew leader (Jerry Granahan) dumping rock at the new pedestrian entrance on Little Mountain Road. This is the power carrier that was bought for us by the Kiwanis Club of Mount Vernon – thanks again!

Also pictured (left to right) are: Kinsey Shilling, Lynn Postler and Ken Bergsma.

In this third image (below) Ken is moving dirt up the trail while the power carrier is off getting another load of rock.

Following, in our fourth photo, is a perfect example of teamwork. This team is working further up the trail, from left to right – Bret Turner, Charlie Kim and Adam Stanmen.

In the final photo (below) Lynn puts the finishing touch on a rock wall at the new pedestrian entrance to the Heart of the Park Public Trail Facility.

Might you lend a hand? Please spread the word, we need your help. Thanks!
