This past month has once again been very productive. So many of you stepped up to the plate and here is what you accomplished:
Wekiwa Springs Fall Festival at Wekiwa
Springs State Park in Apopka
Our booth was supported by Judy Clark, Dan Cleary, Joyce
and Bill Stefancic, Kathy and
Benny Williams and of course Aggie
Armstrong and the folks at Wekiwa Springs State Park.
Water, Wings, Wild Things Polk Nature
Fest at Circle B Reserve in Lakeland
Our booth was supported by Bruce Brown, Dan Cleary, Joyce and
Bill Stefancic and of course Tabitha Biehl-Gabbard and the folks
at The Polk County Environmental Lands Program.
October 24th Trailday
We celebrated John Thomton's birthday. John's one birthday
wish was for his friends to come and help clear a section
of the Trail followed by a cookout. They came out in force and
cleared a huge portion of the trail. Everyone worked
hard and played hard and ate all kinds of festive food.
Eagle Scout Project Completed
Keanne Cadiente, a member with Boy Scout Troop 86, designed and
built a beautiful 45 seat amphitheater as his Eagle project.
Eagle award is a performance-based achievement that requires
earning 21 merit badges in various Scout craft subjects, and
developing and completing a project that will benefit the community.
Keanne, sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in Clermont,
solicited the help of ญญ45 scouts, friends and family members
to accomplish his project. The saying "nature giveth and nature
taketh away" is so true in this instance since the 4"x14"x12'
timbers were from a local barn that was destroyed in a hurricane
several years ago.
This new addition to the Trail now enables
other scout troops, organizations and groups to enjoy this latest
educational and cultural area. A must see for all!
Lake County Adopt a Roadway Clean-Up
Another clean-up proved to be successful as 18 volunteers headed
out onto Monte Vista Road in Clermont. Items collected were shredded
tires, a stereo speaker cover, animal bones, propane tank, assorted
food wrappers, cans, and bottles.
The winner of The Florida Scrub-Jay
T-shirt with the most unique item goes to Jacob Weis with a spring
loaded television cable connector.
