Today was a grand time at the Living Room Turnout. We are thinning out the bushes to make less places for trash to accumulate. It is our hope that thinning out the bushes will also make the area more visible and will thereby deter visitors from leaving things behind. We will be back out there tomorrow morning should anyone wish to join in the fun.
P. S. We will suggest to the board of directors the installation of a trash receptacle in this area as it may encourage people to use it instead of littering in our "Living Room".
By the way, I think it noteworthy to mention that whatever role a person plays in the Mountain Ember Team system, we are all to be aware that we ALL have played a part in the improvement of our community and roads. The grunt work would not be possible without the administrative system that supports it. Furthermore, I am sending a shout out to the community as a whole that we need everyone's input and point of view on how we can improve our team and issues that need to be dealt with. EVERYONE here is important to our happy survival. So please, everyone, do not hesitate in getting in on our communal dialog!
Thank you so much, Jenny, and remember that your part along with everyone else's is what has brought our road to this awesome condition. Truly a team labor of love.
Also, a big shout out to Phil and Ina Britain for bringing their chipper to the rescue this morning in cleaning this weekend's pile. And on a holiday to top it off!
