About 2 months after this internship started, we are finally on the East Coast! We battled through the heat and humidity of the southwest and the Midwest, and were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves not sweating every time we stepped off the RV in Manchester. Not to say that we didn’t get our fair share of work done at our most recent project though!
We had one of our biggest turnouts of the trip, 74 volunteers who blasted through the work at Livingston Park. Marchetti led one group who transported and spread gravel along the Dorr’s Pond trail to level out the ground there. Kim led the other group, who, after taking a 10 minute scenic tour by coach bus to the site at Stark Landing, cleared out about half an acre of Japanese Knot Weed and anything else in their way! In the process they also managed to collect 14 bags of trash, not to mention a couple pillows and other odd items.
Big shoutout to the Manchester Community Crew who completed their part of the trail so fast, Andrew decided to play a couple games with them testing their inner ninja. The Tour 40 team also finally got to put some faces to names as we got a huge show of support from various SCA members and management who came to the event.
As always, thanks so much to all the volunteers who came out (SWA employees, Customers, friends, and family) Come see us in any of our upcoming cities! Boston/Providence is next!
