Jim Holley, one of our members, has organized a cleanup for a stretch of the lower Ashuelot River. The cleanup will start at 9 am and go until noon. If you can bring a pickup that would help in getting the trash to the dump. The debris will go to the Winchester Dump, but we will not be charged for disposal. The directions to the site - from Winchester travel 3  miles on Route 119 towards Hinsdale. At the Pisgah trail head is parking and Jim will have a sign indicating the location Look for Jim's green Honda Element and the sign. You could get there early and fish and stay late and fish! If you are planning to come, please email Mike Elkavitch, melkavitch@gmail.com, so that we have an idea of how many people will be coming.
Thanks!  Hope to see you there!
