Beatty Park Workday Report
Thanks to the efforts of about 30 generous volunteers on Sunday, Dec. 12th, Beatty Park is now back in full swing as a complete loop, including a new connection to the Valley Trail. About 1/4 mile of trail was built on Sunday, plus about 1/8 of a mile which was made ready prior to the workday.

Special thanks go out to Super Dave B. and Trail Coordinator Doug S. for doing at least 20+ hours of prep work to get the corridor cleared and bridges built prior to the big workday.

Special thanks also go out to Jon W. for making his "bobcat" and mini-excavator available to the club. Thanks to the machinery and Jon's expertise in drainage control, the washed out pipe area below the neighborhood is now fixed (again) and able to handle a large volume of storm runoff without washing out. The bobcat made the loading of gravel into the quad's trailer MUCH easier on the backs of the volunteers. The gravel was provided by Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department and for that we are very appreciative.

So go out and enjoy Col. Francis J. Beatty Park again as a 5+ mile loop and thank a volunteer the next time you see them!
