The original 4
These are the original 4 that got together and started the R2T.
Little Lucy and her Dad
Little Lucy never missed a work day. She's all grown up now.
Volunteers from all walks of life
The beauty of R2T is the coming together of volunteers from all walks of life to spend a few hours working for the betterment of the community.
Boy Scouts helping out.
Many scout troops have helped along the way.
This is the before photo. Tell you what...these young people contributed some serious work to the trail that day. Many thanks!
Something for everyone to do. We even bring our own tools.
One of many tires
One of the many old tires being rolled out from the trail. Honestly it was nothing better than digging and pulling to get those tires off the trail. What a sense of accomplishment!
This is the way telephone poles are moved on R2T. TEAM WORK!
Another group of hardworking volunteers.
A few tires
Some of the tires that were dug up on a work day. It was amazing how many old tires found there way to the trail (they were all recycled).
Okay...not all work
We had cookouts too. Needed to feed our workers.
Again moving the telephone poles into place. Those poles are heavy
Many professional landscapers donated their time and equipment to help move the trail along.
Council President Larry Hushour, Kit Valentine and his sons. Kit was very instrumental in inspiring and helping along the trail. What a great guy!
All ages helped
Something for everyone
Clearing the way
Removing dead limbs and debris from the stream
Notice the roller?
Gravel had been poured and needed flattening. A strong group of cubscouts drug that roller all the way.
Another group of volunteers
Little Lucy and group of volunteers (before they got dirty)
Dead tree removal
Many professional tree companies helped remove large dead trees that were a little more than us volunteers could handle.
Well the gravel was delivered and dumped this group of scouts shoveled the gravel into the wheelbarrows then another group toop the wheelbarrows and dumped them. TEAM WORK!
Delegate Kathy Afzali
Delegate Afzali helped along the trail and help secure grant funding for our many projects.
Another group of hardworking volunteers
This young lady worked many work days. She was always happy to help.
Mount Airy Rotary
