Southbridge, the Grand Trunk Trail Blazers, and the Corps of Engineers will
all be holding trail work events in their communities/public lands. As you
can see from below the National organization is looking for the "volunteers"
to participate. I am hoping in the next few weeks you can give this some
exposure in your blogs as you can. Contact Any one of us to meet with you and go over specific projects. They are:
to US Rt 20. Work includes brush cutting, root and rock removal and trash and litter clean up (along RT 20 is really bad). Contact either Tony Bys at
