2020 events CANCELED

We've really missed having our events for most of this year, and we've missed you! But we're still concerned for the health and safety of our community. So our October, November, and December events are canceled. However we're looking forward to 2021 with high hopes.

Meanwhile, we're really excited about our Old Mill Trail development project and still ask for donations for matching funds for our best new trail.

We still have volunteer opportunities, please contact us. Or perhaps you'd be interested in joining our Elite Volunteer program, which begins with a half-day training session in January, date to be announced. Elite Volunteers get a BLT vest and a name badge, choose their own projects, and help out in many other ways. Details coming soon!
