Spring Rail Yard Work Party Report

Thanks to our volunteers we had a very productive work party in the rail yard this month!  The main objective was to remove vegetation, continuing our on-going effort to keep Mother Nature from reclaiming the rail yard. We cleared the area around the substation, as well as area in the rail yard we use for events.


We also removed vegetation, including small trees, along Milwaukee Road. We had planned to remove more trees, but once the community saw all the trees tagged for removal we received quite a few calls.  After hearing some of these concerns, we reduced the number of trees we planned to remove.  Two concerned citizens, Rick Henderson and his friend Jason, volunteered to take on the thinning, pruning and long term care of the apple trees along Milwaukee Road.  Thank you Rick and Jason!


Many thanks to our volunteers! Tom Short, Ray Ewing, John Lidrau, Terry & Marlene Wade, Andy Neault & Byron Scott did the work. Here are some pictures of our hard working volunteers in action.  Click the picture to see a larger version.
