This week's Wednesday Crew on Wednesday April 26th. We will start at the usual time of 8:30 AM, at the Ontario Street parking lot in Canandaigua.
Our plan is sprucing up this parking lot, filling pot holes moving stones from the winters plowing and general pick up..
Last year we switched back and forth between the Phelps and Canandaigua legs of our trail and this seemed to work out well, so we will do it again this year. We will try to post each week’s location a few days in advance.
