MW Clearing Operation (99x75)
THANK YOU from PEVA

"Timmmberrr!" and "You've got paint on ya'" was frequently heard one recent weekend when the good folks ofrom WILLIAMSBURG PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH visited MAKEMIE WOODS.  On behalf of PEVA the Makemie Woods Management Team says "thanks" to those who participated from the church.  As one person said, "There was the right number of people who spent the right amount of time doing the right jobs on the right day and had a right good time."  A storage room was straightened up, another room painted, and many trees and brush were cleared away from around the director's house.  With all the work accomplished there was also a lot of fun and fellowship, and all in one day!  Participating were 10 people from WPC who worked with Jim Pressly to do their bit towards making a difference.
