Saturday, May 1: Adopt A Trail Clean-up Kick Off Day

RCLPC has an opportunity to be stewards of the earth by participating in the Adopt A Trail program offered through the McHenry County Conservation District. During the continuing days of social distancing, this continuing event provides an opportunity for families, youth groups, as well as all church members to gather to socialize while beautifying part of the bike trail. Meet at church at 9:30am for donuts and social time. We will leave for the trail at 10:00am. Mask wearing will be necessary for the health and safety of all participants when working outside of your family

Where: Our portion of the trail runs from the intersection of Ridgefield Road and Rt. 14 (by the Lord and Savior Lutheran Church) to Lily Pond Road. The round trip distance is 1.5 miles.
Equipment: At church there are safety vests, garbage bags and buckets, and some garbage pokers. Each worker must bring their own heavy duty work gloves.
The Earth Care Committee asked the Conservation District if we could be part of the effort to keep the bike trails clean. A sign will be erected to denote RCLPC as maintaining that stretch of the path.
How Often: After this first date, we will use the 2nd Saturday of each month through October or November to clean up the path.

Sunday, May 2 (May Day) - 11:00AM
