Fall 2017 | 33 CLUB NEWS BENNINGTON COUNTY trails to clear and de-brush, plus working with any landowner changes or issues that seem to pop up. With 97 miles of trails to manage, it takes help from many people. If you are not in our area, I encourage you to check with your local club to see if they could use some help. It does not have to be just chainsaw work. Many different skills are required to keep a club moving smoothly. This year, our meetings will be held at the Marriott Hotel meeting room on the third Tuesday every month from September through April. I would like to acknowledge that we lost a founding club member this summer. Margaret Cameron was our secretary and treasurer for decades. Along with her husband, Moses Cameron, they were a huge reason that our club was and still is alive and doing well.
