A Community Dream Realized

Today was the first workday of the Friends of Briarlake Forest.  There was a great turnout and a lot of good work was done by neighbors and Troop 77 BSA.  Ivy was cut from many trees, kudzu vines were removed, dense areas of underbrush next to the sidewalk on Briarlake Road were cleared of debris, and a compost heap was started.  Many people have dreamed of the community coming together and caring for the land together.  Now that dream has become a reality.

Many thanks to Margo Reynolds for organizing the workday and for staying two extra hours to move debris to the curb in front of the house!
