November 2020 Newsletter

We hope that all of you and your family members are safe and healthy.  Due to NH State regulations, we have not been working on State properties until further notice. The requirements are not practical for a trail crew.

            What can we say? It’s 2020. Nothing is as it was. In August we had the opportunity to help Dottie Bean of Farmington again by building two bridges to replace rotted ones and add steps to the steep trail, as well as cleaning out her water bars which weren’t to bad. Someone has been doing that, thank you.

            On Halloween, three individual members attacked the Artist’s Bluff water bars. Well, it’s 2020.  They hadn’t been cleaned last spring and after Thursday’s snow, they were frozen solid and required a pick to open them, much less clean them out.  Needless to say, they weren’t all done.

            Maybe 2021 will be better.

            We hope you will plan to come out with us next year if you missed these two opportunities. Many thanks to Ray Jackson for being Dottie’s “event chair”, and to all who came out for Dottie and Artist’s Bluff.
