    Trails for Kids, Lewisburg, TN

    This is an e-mail from the mayor of Lewisburg after her first officilial trail workday Saturday 4-22, “Trails for Kids”
    hopes to inspire communities to develop and promote recreational
    trails by utilizing their unused space in city parks and public
    lands for hiking and biking trails
    .
    Lewisburg, TN will have a skills area and 3 miles of mountain bike trails for Kids by 2011.
    Even with the threatening storms,We had several real workers show up with tools to work. We decided there were too few to scrape the surface of the trail so(Ray) said he'd return this week and "scrape the trail with his tractor and blade" so we cleared roots and debris where his tractor could not go. (The grass is yellow, but the roots were still attached and did not move easily) Also said he could take out some of the dead trees along the path.
    Also Ray dug holes, set posts (3 feet apart for 36 inch plexiglass) and concreted them in at the end that meets the Rock Creek Walk- He had no trouble digging the holes and then the Kennedy's who were there went and got posts and concrete. SO they put those in. As Barbara and I we came back along the trail, diggging out stumps, Chris was there and had dug stumps and filled holes.
    So the 6 of us did get some good work done. Then we got a warning that the severe weather was directly over us and all wanted to get out of there. Got really dark and very windy.

    I wish you could have met these volunteers, they would have been impressed with you and you would have liked them I'm sure. They are real workers and great volunteers. I know a few who would have been really good volunteers didn't show because of the threatening weather..
