Crozet Trails Day #2

Crozet Trails Day will be held on October 16th. We need volunteers to coordinate events, help plan activities, and attend the celebration to provide information to community members.
Let me know if you are interested in helping or have any ideas. We are in a time crunch so get back with me quickly.

Parade Crew

Small but mighty, once again.

It was great to walk in the parade on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, behind the majestic Smokey the Bear, and have the chance to smile and wave our trail tools at the hoards of viewers.

Thanks Dan, Mark, Mia, and Maverick for your company.

Thank you, Grayrock.

We had a great work day today at Grayrock. It is a work in progress and will take a few more days (and loads of rock) to complete, but it is already a vast improvement.

Thank you to the Grayrock residents who came out to help, David, John, Mark, Barb, Sandi, and others, plus a whole passel of terrific little helpers! And thank you Jacques Gates of the Marjorie Adams real estate team for the much-needed pizza lunch afterward. And, as always, thanks to the fantastic and dedicated CTCrew!

We'll let you know when the next workday is as soon as we figure it out.

Enjoy your fallesque Sunday.
