Greetings, Hammond Trail Stewards,

The next Hammond Saturday work day 10/2/21, will also be a special THANK YOU to Volunteer Trail Stewards who are dedicated to making a difference on the Hammond Trail. We have slots for only 20 Stewards this round; anyone over the count of 20 will be put on a waiting list and I’ll get back to you by Friday, 10/1 if a slot opens. PLEASE RSVP if you would like to attend the following:

  • 9am-11am, VTS work day meeting at the end of Wilbur – See attached map- head west on Murray Rd. from Highway 101, turn right on Fortune St. then left on Wilbur Ave. – and look for our table at the end of Wilbur. We will be tending the usual – weedeat, trash pick up, signs cleanup, prune, remove invasives, etc. – your choice.  Safety Scoop, below.
  • 11-11:30am, THANK YOU HAMMOND VTS!! – Humboldt Trails Council will be providing breakfast burritos, pastries, mandarins and local produce, coffee and water. Besides VTS recognition goodies and thank you’s, there will be Q & A activities:
    • An easel activity to share out: “Why do you volunteer?” “Why do you like the Volunteer Trail Stewards?”
    • A suggestion box for private notes in response to: “What works well in the VTS program?” “What could be done to improve the VTS?” and “What could be done to make your volunteer experience better?”

Please RSVP and join us to eat, drink and be merry while safely socially distancing!
