What. A. Day!

Over 500 square yard's of new ground cleared, and over 1000 square yard's of raking and applying tordon! This was our largest bunch of people so far. The extra numbers definitely helped.

A fantastic work load was accomplished and I know we'll clear the Zipline pole at our next work session.

Next date is scheduled for Sunday 12-2. We'll keep an eye on the weather and let you know through Facebook if we can work on the trails this Sunday.

Thank you to everyone who is following and sharing our post's. It is greatly appreciated.

Stay tuned for more!

Thank you for that! It's the British spelling! I've changed it. I appreciate the feedback though. Thank you

Dony you mean 2-2? Just want to make sure. Want to try to make it to one. We were on the trail the week before the 1st session and would like to help get it cleaned up.

Great job and thank you!!

what exactly is “racking” ?? seriously spell check

The Sports Department helped out today on the trails. You can see how close we are to the end of the Zipline now! And towards the end of the video, just past the new wood pile, you can see the old mirror on the tree, as pointed out a couple of days ago. Phenomenal work!

With the possibility of a brief change of weather on Friday and Saturday, Thursdays work will be clearing up the leaves and applying tordon to the stumps.

We will be meeting at noon Thursday for any volunteers willing to assist. Thank you.

We have successfully passed the climbing tower! Now we're heading towards the brown shed!

A little more than 400 square yard's conquered today with the help from volunteer Ray Hughes and Sports Official Darren before the fuel cap broke on the chainsaw!

So additionally we cleared away the leaves and debris back to the tree line. This allows us to see where we need to cut the honeysuckle lower so the lawn mowers can safely mow the new area once the grass starts growing back.

Good news is that I picked up a new fuel cap on the way home from work so everything is a go for this week!

Dates are Monday January 7, 1-3;
Tuesday January 8, 12-2;
Wednesday January 9, 1-3;
Thursday January 10, 12-2;
Sunday January 13, 12-2.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please spread the word. Thank you!

Congrats, Stephanie! We appreciate you!

Way to go Angelina Marie Lawrence!! I enjoy your classes! Glad you’re still dedicated!!

Today volunteer Ray Hughes and Sports officials Sabian and Darren helped clear approximately 440 square yard's of the invasive honeysuckle.

You can really see how much it took over the fields with the difference between the tree line and the ground color. We are focusing on the trail-to-field portion right now, but we saw a glimpse of the vehicles across the river. Once it is done, you'll have a great view from the new bridge and overlook that has been proposed as part of the Smoky Hill River Renewal project.

This week we are looking for volunteers to assist on:
Thursday January 3, 2019 between 12-2;
Sunday January 6, 2019 between 12-2.

Please wear long sleeves, good tread shoe's and bring work gloves. We will be near the climbing tower.

Feel free to share. Thank you.

What is the latest on the heating system repair in the family pool area. Was there 1 week ago yesterday( Thursday). We cut our aquasize class short. The water was 81°. Only cold water coming in. Getting out of the pool was beyond uncomfortable. Skipped class yesterday. Now I dread coming. I was doing aquasize class plus putting in an extra hour. Twice a week. Then doing 2 hrs on Sunday. Now I skip Sunday altogether. Do aquasize & maybe 15 min extra. Much too cold to stay longer. I renew every 3 months. It is due now. I went to the Minneapolis Wellness Center last year during the renovation. Seriously considering going there again. The water is warm. The room is warm, the locker room is warm & the jacuzzi is right by the pool. Worth the 20 min drive to be comfortable.

Another great day removing the honeysuckle from the trails. The piles are getting bigger and now you can start to see between the trail and the fields! Thank you once again to Ray Hughes, Sabian and new addition Jack Mitchell for all your help.

Some before and after photos of today's work on the trails. Great job by Sabian and Emmy from the Sports Department, and community member Ray Hughes for assisting. You can really see how much they achieved today.
We are still needing volunteers if you can spare an hour or two on Monday December 24 from 11-1.
Thank you.

Did you know?

Look at this amazing floral arrangement! A member of the community picked up some of our tree limbs from our pine trees . We still have some limbs left to make your own porch or table center piece! Or maybe put a couple of logs on an open fire to really make your home smell festive!
Pick up by the exit of the main parking lot. First come, first served.

*Needing VOLUNTEERS*

Honeysuckle is an invasive species in Kansas. It has taken over the Y's 1.4 mile trail.
We need help, as viewed in the first half of this video, to eradicate the honeysuckle. Friends of the River and numerous volunteer groups have done a phenomenal job, as viewed in the second half of this video, with cutting down the honeysuckle and stacking it into piles. You can actually see the trees!

If you can stack piles, we need your help.
Volunteer dates and times will be:
Sunday December 23 from 12-3;
Monday December 24 from 11-1.

Please meet on the south west corner of the trail. Just follow the sound of the chainsaw! Please bring work gloves, wear good tread shoe's and long sleeves.

Thank you for your support in making your trail a safe and enjoyable adventure.
