FOC Newsletter, President's Letter,  Spring 2024

Greetings Friends!

Spring has finally arrived! I love the longer days, warmer weather, the emergence of skunk cabbage and daffodils. Yes, I love skunk cabbage! Soon the peepers will be chirping and bringing a smile to my face as I spend more time on the trails. I hope you get outside and enjoy it too. To kick off the spring season, please join the Friends on April 29 for a day of “Club Fishing,” or sign up for I Love My Park Day May 4. Whatever you choose, come out and enjoy springtime in the Preserve!

Why not enjoy the outdoors by taking a house tour? House tours are offered on the first and third Sundays of the month through June. Have you taken one lately? If not, you should! In addition to the tour of the Clubhouse, which has some beautiful new exhibits, Connetquot's engaging docents have added other buildings on the grounds to their tours. Please read the article on the Marsh Room exhibit; it is incredible!

And if I must boast, the History Team has reached an amazing milestone. Two years and hundreds of hours of sorting and recording is finally coming to fruition, and Gifting Day is scheduled for April 15. Congratulations!

Volunteers are precious, and we need you! We need gardeners, carpenters and painters for projects we'd like to do this year. Interested? Please sign up to volunteer on our website. If you have already signed up in the past, please do so again; our volunteer list needs a refresh! I look forward to working in the garden or in the water with you!

See you out there!
