Next SHAF Workday, March 21, 2020

Hello SHAF Members!

Our next scheduled workday is March 21 at the Poffenberger tract across from the visitor center. The start time is 9:00 am but you are welcome to come anytime during the day. The day will end at around 4 pm. The plan is to remove more brush and trees and run them through a chipper rented for the day and clean the property of debris and old fencing. A dumpster will be in place for the debris and fencing. Please dress for the weather, bring gloves, eye protection and hearing protection to use. Also, bring water or other beverage to stay hydrated and pack a lunch if you want. A reminder will be sent out the week of.

 

SHAF Workday this Saturday, March 30

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!
