The Friends of Hemlock Gorge

Celebration of Our Spring and Fall Cleanups in 2007

 


Spring, 2007  

April 21

The Friends and the DCR (formerly the MDC) extend heartfelt thanks to all the many volunteers who helped despite the rainy and cool weather.

We also send a big thank you to Seanna, Bob and everyone at Dunn Gaherins, 344 Elliott St, Newton, MA 617-527-6271 for providing snacks and a terrific lunch of shrimp salad, chicken salad, marinated chicken breast and sandwich fixings. These were provided to volunteers at no charge to the Friends!
