The Branford SGT team is saddened by the loss of founding member and dear friend, Art Johnson. Art was a regular at our monthly meetings, and we miss his colorful language and humorous anecdotes about his youth in Branford. He frequently joined us on our First Saturday walks as well as on the Friday morning walks with the Branford Walkers. Art would be trudging along at his own pace and often surprised the group by coming to the end of the walk ahead of us by following his own path.
Calling all volunteers! In preparation for design and construction of the final part of the Hammonasset section, the Madison Team of volunteers will soon start preliminary clearing of the section from Liberty Street up the hill to the beginning of the Hammonasset Park property where the completed trail now ends. If you would like to join us, email email@example.com and we will contact you once work parties are scheduled.
Saturday October 25 was a beautiful fall day, perfect for doing anything outside! Branford’s Trail Maintenance work party (Chet Blomquist, Tony Corso, Leo Cristofer, Jack Wood, and Steve Zaehringer and myself) were just getting started clearing the new Tabor Property trail heading toward Chet’s Pond. Along came three young gentlemen meandering down the street enjoying their day. They asked me what we were doing and I told them we were clearing the trail for the Shoreline Greenway Trail. On a lark, I asked them if they would like to join us. To my surprise they said ‘yes, we would love to!’ Not wasting any time, we put them to work. All three, Josh Sansone, Quint Caruthers, Kevin Desiderioscioli were delightful and very hard workers. Josh offered to go home and get some additional tools, returning with hedge clippers and a weed whacker, and even water bottles for us all- how thoughtful! We enjoyed working with all three of these boys and hope to see them again on the trail! Thank you Josh! Thank you Quint! Thank you Kevin! - Jo Zaehringer, SGT board member
