Manhan Rail Trail Committee Meeting: May 18, 2015

The next meeting of the Manhan Rail Trail Committee will be held on Monday, May 18 at 7:00 PM at the Easthampton Municipal Building, 50 Payson Ave., Easthampton.  Items on the agenda usually include maintenance issues and ideas for improving and expanding the trail.  All meetings are open to the public, so please stop by, we’d love to have you there!


Trail/Downtown Clean Up Day: May 2, 2015

Please save the date for the annual clean up Saturday morning, May 2.  Most volunteers who clean the trail meet at the mural between Payson Avenue and Union Street around 8:00 or 8:30.  Others spread out to their favorite spot to clean.  We usually weed, spread fresh mulch around the bushes, sweep the trail, cut back brush and pick up trash.

If possible, please bring your own garden or work gloves and a shovel, rake, weeder or other favorite gardening tool.  We work hard, but we have a lot of fun and we need help!!!   Please consider donating an hour or two that morning to help keep the trail looking tiptop.
