We had a great time at the fall festival where we set up a table and raffled off a gift basket from the Cracker Barrel store on 133, and a $20 gift card from Mann`s orchard ere in Methuen.
The weather cooperated and the vendors giving out free samples were there again. If you have kids, put this on your list of things to do next year.
We have two events happening. The first is this Saturday, the fall festival at greycourt, behind city hall. From 11-2 or so. we will be setting up just before 11 and its usually done by 2. we will be raffling off a few items to help bring people to the table. its usually a good time, music, food, kids running around in costumes. so come by and say hi and stay to help out with the table.
the second event is the moon walk, sunday the 25th, 6:30 at the ihop parking area. come out and enjoy a fall walk with leaves on the trail and the smell of fall ion the air. pretty soon there will be snow there
Our monthly meeting is this Tuesday at 7pm at Nevins library. we will be discussing donor signs on the kiosk, landscaping around the area of the kiosk, upcoming walks and setting up a table at the fall festival and possibly the fishing derby. Up coming grants that are available and projects to persue next year. hope to see you there to help make our trail the best.
We were out on Saturday afternoon at a local event. beautiful day and a great event
