The workday for Rock Run that had been cancelled twice due to wet conditions has been rescheduled for Monday, August 5, 2019, weather permitting. The goal is to move the limestone sand that was delivered in May to position along the stream banks in the headwaters.
If you want to help out or just want to observe and learn more about the project, we are meeting at 9 a.m. at the Linn Run State Park office which is located on Linn Run Road.
The work day on Rock Run scheduled for Monday, June 24th has been cancelled due to wet conditions. The new date is Monday, July 22nd. If you want to volunteer or just observe, we are meeting at the park office on Linn Run Road at 9 am on July 22nd. We will be working with park staff to position limestone sand to the headwaters of the stream.
Hard to believe but April is almost over. Our May meeting will be held Wednesday, May 1st at 6:00 pm, this month, upstairs at Geo’s in Latrobe.
At this month’s meeting, we will be discussing the 2019 picnic and finalizing plans for the May 11 Disabled Vets event.
We need volunteers to secure raffle prizes and plan activities. We want to make this year’s picnic a family oriented event with activities and prizes for kids. We will be asking all members to purchase/sell raffle and picnic tickets. Expect a mailing from FTTU later in May.
Tickets will also be available at our June meeting at the Lincoln Highway SupperMarket on June 5.
We are also asking members to help sell buttons to raise funds for our future Veterans Service Programs. We ask for a $5.00 donation for each. You can pick up a bag of buttons at our get together at Geo’s.
There will be an informal stream-side clean-up on the Loyalhanna Creek Delayed Harvest section in Ligonier. The amount of stream we can cover will depend on how many volunteers participate.
If you’d like to help out, we are meeting at the Nature Trail parking lot (across from Giant Eagle) at 4:30 pm.
