Is this some secret code that we're supposed to understand?

What really helped was Joe on the drill (younger and stronger) and the new more expensive drill bit.  It helps to pay for the best!

Steve, did you see the latest issue of Coastal Journal?  Long article on Boothbay Railroad Village focusing on their "Fan Day".  Given the new direction of Coastal Journal, we should be able to get a similar article for WW&F...maybe just pick a special event they would want to emphasize...

WOW, that looks so great!  It was really tricky (and actually a little scary) to get around, especially last winter when we were cutting trees and burning brush.

What an improvement!

I'm totally with Jason about the current schedule and the challenge to develop fun reasons for folks to lay over to the next train back.  Sitting on a coach back and forth is ok enough, but it could be so much more special, especially with families with kids.

Remember also, they will be our future volunteers!

I drove into the Conservancy parking lot today.  Mike did a great job of improving it!  When neighbors help neighbors, only good things can result!

Visited with Mike today onsite.  I wanted to personally see the progress down at 218.  He showed me where the run-around is going to be. 

We all owe so much to Mike and Joe (the track maintenance nudge) that it's hard to express...

Work and Events / Re: Alna Day - Saturday June 16, 2018

I too hope that Alna Day becomes an annual event for the town, naturally centered on the railroad.  Many other Maine towns have annual days which have lasted for years and years.  Hopefully we'll remain -- at least for now -- the organizing force to make it happen again and again.  It really does generate town spirit and energy, and should continue to grow.

Many thanks to the town participants, especially my favorite farm market vendors Amy and Toby.

In furthering intra-Alna cooperation, it would not hurt to offer some of our ALNA neighbors the opportunity to display and sell their wares at Sheepscot Station.  That would be a win-win for all!!

How will we tastefully block off the end of the ROW from 218?  Bollards?  A Kiosk?  Landscaping?  Something to think about...

Where will the BBQ grill go?  We can't NOT have a cookout at the house!

There is also an alewife fish ladder in Woolwich on George Wright Road just off of Route One.  You can visit any time during the alewife season, and even volunteer to count!

The fishery (and the others such as Damarascotta) has been actually protected by law way back into the 1700's.

Visit and enjoy, it's a unique Maine adventure.  If you want to buy some, be aware that my attempts to make alewives palatable were sorely lacking.
