Greetings from Shelton Day

 Greetings from Shelton Day 2012

Bill, Sandie, Terry & Lynn posed with Thirsty the Aquarion Water Company Penguin.  Maybe next year we can get a mascot suit made up for Bill to wear.

We had a great booth location between Dunkin' Doughnuts and Danny O's thanks to Sheri's planning.  This is probably the best spot for a Trail Party.

The threat of rain hung over Howe Avenue as Shelton Day kicked off on October 12th.

A barbecue booth was next to us and Liquid Lunch was across the street.  It was really tough trying to talk to the public about open space when all you can smell is meat-on-a-stick from next door.  

At least we wouldn't starve to death.

We talked to a lot of folks about trails and open space in town.  We handed out lots of maps.

One of our biggest hits were the Empire apples from Beardsley Orchards.  And they were good for holding the maps down in the wind.  We were just trying to support our local farmers.  Now all we need is some of Dan's hard cider & maybe then we can line up some trails volunteers.

We were trying to sign up trails volunteers, but we wound up talking to everybody who was interested in open space; including ourselves.

We even did a little dog sitting while talking to folks.

Rich & Terry standing around looking harmless during a dry period.

Polly, Bill & Lynn in front of one of our favorite downtown businesses.  Now if only we can get them to deliver along the trails.

Rich cleaning up at the end -somebody's got to do it.  It was a great time & we'd like to thank the Shelton-Derby Rotary Club for letting us help out again.  We look forward to doing it again next year.
