L-R: Peter Krug and Matt Hagner dragged out rolls of collapsed fencing behind 826 NME. Some of it had grown into trees and had to be cut free, they said. That’s committee chair Saven Wilkins at the right.

On November 4, the following people worked to pull up a considerable amount of euphorbia INSIDE the circle to make way for the belated planting of a tree in honor of New Mark’s 55th anniversary in 2022: L-R Yellow Wilkins, Ron Tipton, Eddie Potocko, Amy Roswurm, Forence Browning (age 5.5), her dad Kyle Browning, and Chris Durso.
