Please join us tomorrow night at Trailside Coffee for our monthly meeting (6-8pm). We have some important things to discuss. And guess what? There”s air conditioning there!
One thing we will be talking about is our involvement in the Crozet July 4th celebration (happening on July 3rd). The Crozet Trails Crew will be walking in the parade (3-5pm) and helping out with the festivities at Crozet Park (5-9pm). We really need folks to be involved, even if just for a 1-hour chunk of time. If you can’t come to the meeting this week, please let me know what your availability is for that day. Kids are encouraged to help as well. This is going to be a fantastic community event and a great opportunity for the CTC to be seen (in our awesome new T-shirts!).
This Saturday, the place to be is Preddy Creek Park. Here’s the press release:
