There will be a workday at the Meadow, Sunday, May 11 from 1pm-5pm--come and go as you please. The agenda: remove erosion control socks; plant plugs of new plants and mulch around them; weed gingerly without trampling the plants emerging. Volunteers should dress in clothes that protect their skin from sun, wear sturdy shoes, bring a hat, and gloves.

Emily Hoffman Swihart, MLA, has two significant achievements this spring: she successfully defended her thesis and her baby, Frederick Royce Swihart III was born April 25!
