There has been a change of plans for our Springwater Trails maintenance day on Sunday.  Last week, flooding caused quite a bit of damage around Branchport and Penn Yan, including at Camp Good Days.  We have decided to travel to Camp Good Days on Sunday to help the clean up in preparation for their camping season that starts May 31.  

The amount of work required will depend on how many people volunteer this week.  As a result, please check the Springwater Trails website on Saturday for updates.

We will plan to be at Camp Good Days at 12:30 and to work until they quit for the day around 4:00.  Work will involve cleaning up debris and painting and probably other tasks to repair damage.  Please bring boots for the mud and gloves.  A rake or shovel would be good tools to bring, but put your name on your tools. If you wish to bring a wheel barrow, that could well be useful.  A sandwich and water will help sustain you through the afternoon.

After work, we will find a place to eat before the trip home – possibly Keuka Corners Pizza on Italy Hill Rd in Branchport.

Branchport is about an hour from Springwater, so car pooling is recommended. Good points to car pool would be
