    Annual Summer Maintenance Day    

Date: 15 August 2009

The annual trail maintenance and clean-up day was conducted on Saturday, August 15th.  Thank you to all of the club members and volunteers who participated!  The Club helps maintain the South Flower Creek Trails in pristine condition for both summer and winter recreation.  We are looking forward to a great snow season, just around the corner.  Below are some pictures from the cleanup/maintenance day, courtesy of Jackie:
