Years ago Irene Gossin ran successfully for Town Supervisor and handed out 15,000 seedlings

Under Trail Master:

Carol is contacting Granite Holdings for a connection to the Auburn Trail, not Lehigh

Under Trail Boss:

Jeff discovered that the percentage of fees that go to the Go Fund me organization is 7% or higher, his suggestion in that fund raising be done directly to VHT or through our PayPal account at 2.2% rather than via Go Fund Me.
