Mid-day Friday, March 13th, we were informed by local authorities that public events of “over ten people” should be cancelled, even if outdoors.
Before this setback we were gaining momentum. Skagit Valley College’s Wildland Firefighting Class (shown above) had joined us on Sunday, March 1st, to rough-in Phase II of the Pump House Trail. As our second “guest group” of the year their eighteen (18) volunteers edged past the first group, that attended the prior week:
- 1st: SVC’s Wildland Firefighting Class with 54 volunteer hours.
- 2nd: Serve Group of Radius Church with 47.25 volunteer hours.
Cascades Job Corps Students and Faculty, last year’s “Top Group,” was scheduled as a “guest group” the next two sessions, on March 14th and the 28th – then this happened.
We will resume sessions at some point, unfortunately “for now” they have been suspended for the foreseeable future…
