Spring Cleanup

With sunny skies, 70 degree temperatures, 41 people, lots of enthusiasm, and energy, and lots of tools, especially the augur, we completed many projects.  Check this out!

  • Pruned magnolias on Magnolia Dr.
  • Cleaned up muddy areas at lower end of  Briarcliff Reservation and uncovered 2 large drains in that area.
  • Leveled 3 large piles of dirt on the lower side of Briarcliff Reservation.
  • Raked all beds including Hillside, Briarcliff and Oakwood triangles, raked around holly tree grove and lower curve of Pentwater, and community building areas.
  • Planted pansies, cardinal flower and hay scented ferns and transplanted small white pines.
