SHAF will be holding a work day this Saturday, March 30 at the American Battlefield Trust’s Poffenberger Tract directly across from the Antietam National Battlefield Visitor Center. The work will begin at 9 am.
We will be mostly feeding brush and tree limbs into a chipper, although there may be some other work too. It is likely we will be there most of the day as there is a lot of brush and tree limbs to grind up. Any and all help is welcome.
We hope to see you there!
Save the date for a couple of our upcoming annual events for 2019. There will be more information to follow shortly.
