Dear Friends of Hemlock Gorge:
Having managed to complete the installation of new railings by the Stone Building, we are still looking to make arrangements for the repair of the building’s roof. After a successful spring cleanup of the reservation, we had a spring picnic on the meadow on a fine day in August, the repairs to Cook’s Bridge having been completed. However, extreme weather conditions forced cancellation of the fall cleanup. Jim Purdy retired as Treasurer and his position has been filled by Robin Dexter, who has become a great asset working on our behalf
In 2019, the Friends of Hemlock Gorge will continue our past activities, maintain our partnership with the Department of Conservation and Recreation and others and develop new ones to preserve and enhance Hemlock Gorge.
To do all of this and much more, we need your help to build on our success.
· Our spring and fall cleanups need your continued participation.
· Our fundraising projects need your vocal and visible support as we ask Newton and Needham for Community Preservation Act funds and private donors to fund new railings for Echo Bridge.
· Please visit our web site at www.hemlockgorge.com and visit us on Facebook.
· Finally, please attend our monthly meetings, usually on the first Tuesday of the month, at the Emerson Community Center on Pettee Street in Newton Upper Falls.
Thank you for all you have done for Hemlock Gorge Reservation in 2018 and
for all you will help the Friends do in 2019
