Kit Valentine Clean Up Day A Success
Last spring, CRTT volunteer, Kit Valentine began to clear the Mellor Avenue portion of the Catonsville Short Line Trail that parallels Mellor Ave. Kit removed 40 years of fallen limbs, vines and debris so that the trail would be visible from the road. By himself, Kit cleared approximately 40% of this portion of trail. Unfortunately, Kit has been ill and we are hopeful he’ll recover soon but he is unable to complete this project at this time. So CRTT volunteers pitched in and got the job done for Kit. For more information on Kit, see this great article in Catonsville Times .
On April 5, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., 42 volunteers banned together to pull vines/ivy off trees, stack fallen limbs, clear the trail and do a job Kit was proud of. The Catonsville Women’s Giving Circle sent volunteers as did the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity who sent 15 members who ran the wood chipper. Student from Catonsville High School’s Honor Society and community volunteers helped to fill a 30 yard dumpster and pull limbs on tarps to the chipper.
Thanks to George Brookhart of Maryland Residential Realty for donating lunch and Cockey’s for donating the dumpster. Kit thanks everyone who showed up to support this effort.
