Workday at Jones Creek this Saturday, June 20th

There will be a Council sponsored workday at Jones Creek this Saturday, June 20th, from 9am-12 noon. Gold Rush is the lead chapter and will be serving lunch after the work is done. We welcome anybody who would like to attend and help restore this beautiful little brown trout stream not far from Dahlonega.
I am attaching a set of directions to the stream. There will also be a caravan leaving from the Wagon Wheel Restaurant at 8:10 am.
If you plan to attend, could you please rsvp me so that we can plan for lunch?
I hope to see you there. Thanks,
Mike Thornton
President, Gold Rush Chapter
