Time to clean up

Ahoy, Fletcher Field shipmates.

Just a reminder that the spring cleanup at the park is scheduled for Saturday, June 1, at 10 a.m.

There will be planting, tilling, weed-pulling and, well, you know the drill.

If we have enough participants, I’d like a group of you to take the short trip down Mt. Olivet and help out Edith Floyd, who’s still recovering from two surgeries and is a little behind with her gardening.

Speaking of surgeries, I will be on the disabled list for Saturday’s effort. As some of you know, I’ve struggled with a neck issue since last October. Well, it’s now gotten to the point where I’ve run out of options and require surgery, which will occur Thursday.

If I feel up to it, I will join you at the park as a cheerleader from the picnic table. If not, I’ll be with you in spirit. — Michael
