April 20th Clean Up Made Much Headway

Howard Davis organized the first clean up day at Craighead House for April 20, 2013. A dozen volunteers turned out ready and willing to work. In Just three hours of cutting, pulling, yanking, raking, and carrying, five or six (we lost count) dump truck loads were hauled to the Township mulching facility. The branches and trimmings will become mulch for other people. Check here or on the Craighead House Facebook page for information regarding the next clean up day.
