HGB II Projects:
Bill was leading a crew filling in ruts in the primitive trails used by the Wilderness Run/Walk. The work crew was Bill Freas on the walk-behind Bobcat loader, WC Enmon and Ray Kenley were trimming branches and weeds/grass along the trail near the picnic table and water fountain. Monica and Tori Denney (mother/daugther team) along with Jim Dunn spread decomposed granite delivered by Bill to fill in ruts in the trail. We also dug in diversion ditches to re-route rain water plus put in some cedar rails in the trails to help divert water off the trails. On the way back to Squires, Bill had us load a big rock on the Bobcat as a possible base for Ken's memorial plaque.

Tony Mayata was leading a crew clearing the trail off of Squires and then joined up with Bill's crew.

Friends of the Parks is a group of citizens who enjoy the rewards of volunteer service in the parks and greenbelts areas of Lakeway. Monthly Saturday morning work sessions provide opportunities for all levels of service, whether it is tree maintenance, general cleanup or tending memorial gardens at City Park.
