August 13 work day

Worked out at East End for about 3 hours this morning. It was just Erin and me. We whacked, pulled and mowed weeds. Erin found a gravestone in an area that had been cleared over a year ago. Neither one of us got bitten by mosquitoes. I put our physical barriers back up on the roads.

Upcoming July 30 work day

No groups are scheduled this Saturday, July 30, so I would like to make the day a maintenance day to cut grass and knock down weeds and brush. I have 4 trimmers I can bring but need people to run them. If someone wants to bring their own trimmer or mower, that would very helpful. Let me know if you can help out. I plan to start by 8:30. We also have fallen trees to cut up and haul to the brush pile.
