Shelton Day was a Success 10-4-09

We had a great turnout for Shelton Day. Last year we helped out with the Land Trust's booth & that was fun. This year we did a separate booth for the Trails Committee & the Conservation Commission. Rich & Jim are posing in front of the new canopy.

A lot of folks came up to chat - including these two from the Civil War (and no, it's not the Democrats vs. the Republicans, although we had those too). Sherri seemed to know half the people in Shelton. We had a good spot between Danny O's and Dunkin Doughnuts - we'll have to try to get that next year.

We handed out a lot of trail mails, CFPA Conn. Walk info, nature brochures, and Lynn's baking. A lot of fiends (make that friends), trail volunteers & other folks stopped by to talk and ask questions.

Some of the info got wet when a series of thunderstorms came thru in the afternoon, but then the sun came out again to round out a nice Fall Sunday. Rich, Pete, Bill, and Jim helped break down the booth. Here's Bill talking with Joe Pratt about the best places to cut down trees.

A lot of people were actually out using the trails, boat launches, and fishing areas along Shelton Lakes today as well as enjoying Shelton Day downtown. It was a great day, a number of folks signed up as trail volunteers, & we even sold a couple of tee shirts. We'll have to do it again next year. Enjoy our trails & open spaces from the Shelton Trails Committee.
