Please note: We are gearing up for a busy week of school groups so our picnic area and trails are important to clean up and beautify. We will need to stain our picnic tables and do some landscape work in that area as well as to get our trails cleared and better marked. If time permits we hope to be able to plant items in the historic kitchen garden (this is weather dependent) and also clear debris from our cemetery plot.
