Well, there were no mad dogs in sight, none of us were Englishmen (though we all spoke fluent English), and we never made it to noon. But it was pretty darn hot!

|The rec path at the Lane Street meadow was being overrun by weeds and the encroaching hayfield|
|Using a brush mover towed by our gator made short work of clearing the tallest stuff|
|We forgot to tell Jim to add gas or the mower won't work|
|Terry takes advantage of the shade to take a break. It was hot out there!|
|A weary Jim and Mike call it quits for the day after hours of cutting, hacking, and staring down wayward brush and weeds|
|There's a little more elbow room now on this part of the trail. 'til next time!|
Seems like only a few of us were crazy enough to spend a Saturday morning tackling the accumulated vegetation that resulted from the past rainy days. We could have used more help, of course, and we hope that more volunteers come out for our next work party on June 24. Thanks to Shelton Trail Committee members Terry, Jim, and Richard, and volunteer (many times) Mike.
