Tool Party and Annual Meeting

Every November members of the Trail Center gather to scrub, sharpen, wash and paint the tools and equipment we use during the year for our monthly builds.

This fun event combines work, cameraderie, good food and entertainment to accomplish the necessary tasks required to keep our mattocks, McLeods, picks and shovels in top condition.

All Trail Center members are invited to come and participate. The annual meeting and officer elections are held after the tools are put away. The day ends with a special presentation by one of the Trail Center members or a guest speaker.
