    EVENTS COMING UP

    December 2nd– Freedom Park work day, lunch and meeting with board member elections.  Meet in the parking lot around 8:45. The club will have tools but bring your favorite rake or clippers. Bring bikes as some will probably need to ride out to work areas.  If you have ever considered doing a little more for the EVMA, contact Jim Irby to see how you can help.  Several board members are stepping down and all offices are open.

    The day is here – Your chance to make a difference in the EVMA.  Please consider volunteering your time for one of these positions:  President, VP of Trails, etc.  The club also needs a volunteer to help coordinate/document trail inspections.  Once or twice a month log in website and check that trail inspections have been completed and send reports to the various park managers.  Please speak up at this weekend’s meeting if you are interested in filling one of these positions.
