    What a great event Claire! Won't be able use my arms for a couple of days, but that's okay....all in helping to save a beautiful spot.

    I am in absolute awe of Jerry! He does what we did today, seven days a week. And he has been at it for 2 1/2 years! Made some new friends and enjoyed joining some of the group for lunch; hope to see you all at future events. Everyone have a great weekend.
