A crew of weedwhackers and bush trimmers headed for the Penn State Golf Course on October 4 for the United Way Day of Caring. The project was again the golf course perimeter bikepath/jogging path. The trail has been a Centre County United Way Day of Caring project each year from 2011-2018. This year there were 72 volunteers working in shifts to clear brush from wooded portions of the trail. Joe Hughes--Penn State Golf Courses PGA General Manager, Liz & Jim Kisenwether, and Cheree Jones coordinated project
Volunteers: The Penn State men's lacrosse team, KBB Realty employees, Joe Hughes--Penn State Golf Courses PGA General Manager, a representative from KidTech Inc., and several individuals worked tirelessly to clear brush and make the trail safer.
NVRC, as usual, chipped in for food and drinks (lunch).
Here are some highlights of the day.

Dona O'Hara of Kissinger, Bigatel, and Brower was busy clearing brush
Handsaws were the tool of choice for the bigger branches
Off to the brush pile!
That's a substantial branch!
Is that enough for a bonfire?
Things looked a little close before the clearing began...
...and a lot better afterward!
Can't even see in there!
