What? No one is wondering? Oh well, I'll tell you all anyway.
Volunteer Clean-up Day at Haskins Park was a success!
A HUGE success.

More than pleased.
As a matter of fact...after they had left and at the finish of an impromptu walk that I took in the woods with a local artist...I got back to my truck amazed to find one of the guys already weed-whacking!
On Friday morning the big equipment was on site. Major debris pile removal was taking place. I could actually see the southwest stone wall! The crew had filled two small dump trucks and one massive truck by 9 a.m.!
R and I arrived at 7 a.m. Saturday morning. After seeing how much debris the DPW had removed, I had figured the volunteers would only need one truck. It arrived by 7:30. It was full by 11 a.m. and one brave volunteer drove it to unload at the 'dump'. We filled that truck two more times before our pack of 21 hard-working volunteers finally could work no longer. What a day.

Amazing what a bunch of older folks can do!
I'm looking forward to seeing a lot more photos over at Mr. Scribbler. He took some great shots on Saturday AND from the DPW work on Friday. Please encourage him to post them.
