I wanted to call your attention to a Countywide event which benefits all of us. In addition, if your children or students need service hours, this is a great opportunity to get them done before the deadline and benefit your community at the same time. Details are in the press release below. Please note that the deadline for registration to receive your free clean up supplies and free mulch is
September 18, 2015.
Even though it is not January, September always feels like a new beginning to me. What a good way to enjoy a fall day, get a little exercise and begin the new season! Hope to see you out there.
