    Accomplished Much! Special thanks to our sawyers and crew leaders: Brad Henderson, Richard Kersten, Matt Casella and Bruce Varner. All the volunteers from Western Gate were greatly appreciated.

    It was a great work event. Since I couldn't be there for the other larger work effort, I am glad I could participate in this final .4 mile to finish it out.

    I missed it. My hubby is home for the weekend, and, well...I'm sorry I didn't let you know not to expect me.

    The weather cooperated for both trail crews completing the cut of the new Florida National Scenic Trail along US 331. We completed the two miles. All that remains is approval from Eglin, orange blazes and some signage. Thank you one and all for a job well done!
