Stewardship Corner

Pat Selby, continuing as Stewardship Committee Chair, has two work days organized for this spring, including the annual property clean-up held in conjunction with the Kiwanis hosted Island Clean-Up on Saturday April 17.

That day we will also be planting trees and bushes, so we really need your help. On Saturday May 15, we will have a "heavy-duty" clean-up day in conjunction with the Open Space Committee's "Dump the Junk" program. If you have a trailer available for transporting heavy waste items, we would really love to see you on this day.

Meet at our Centennial Farm office at 9:00AM both days. Please email us at to be added to our volunteer email list. You can also become a Facebook Fan to stay informed of work days. Or, call Pat Selby (734-692-2936) and let her know your intentions to participate.
