Just to add to this;
We did a little mowing and picking up in the main "list field" today, but there is still a TON of branches and deadfall to pickup on the rest of the property (parking field, camp sites, etc.) In fact I would like to ask that next weekend be made a special request weekend, I would also like to ask for help on the front part of the property with picking up. I know that when people first drive in the place does not look so great (not near as nice as out back), this is because I can't mow with all the stuff on the ground up there. If we can get it all picked up then I can keep ALL the property mowed and looking nice.
Please make an effort to show up on the date you choose at your meeting, even if it is only for a few hours your help will be greatly appreciated!
Also feel free to just come out anytime during the week if thats all you have the schedule to do and pickup stuff and add to the pile near the tavern.
