Key Dates as follows: May 13th. and May 21st.
Our continued efforts are to clean up and landscape the site for greater beneficial use. This will reflect FLW's design principals keeping the foundation of the house visible. With 10-15 volunteers working together, we could really make a difference! 
Food and water will be provided.
Volunteers should bring gloves, wear protective shoes and clothing. These events are BYOT. Bring your own tools. Loppers, pruning shears, rakes, shovels, hoes, wheel barrows are always in high demand. Any donations of yard waste bags would be appreciated. Please mark with your name.
