We had a great CREW led by Michael Plummer with Rae Edwards Anna from City of Bellingham Greenways Volunteer program. Fairhaven Lions Joel Haggen and Gary & Bartley Metcalf. Joined by Jen Gallant, David Kehe, Jennifer Barker, Trevor & Noah Pitsch and Gerrit & Jane VanVoorst.
Here are the Jens having fun while working away.
