First Work Day of 2011 is a Big Success

Our first volunteer work day of 2011 was a big success. In our best turnout yet, 19 people–including many new faces–showed up to haul trash and other debris up and out, trim vines and pull weeds among other tasks. We got a lot done, but, of course, there's much more to do.

Here are some photos of our work:

We owe special thanks to: Stacee Farrell and the Keep Athens-Clarke Co. Beautiful Program for loaning us tools; Matt Elliot for picking-up and returning those tools; Bruce and Jane Travis for bagels, cream cheese, fruit and water; Lillian Agel for coffee and more; Charles Apostolik for cleaning-up tools afterwards; Rachel Watkins for taking photos of the work day; and to ACC's Landscape Division for–among many other things–agreeing to remove all the debris we hauled up and out of the site.
