Dear Members and Friends,
June was a busy month as the articles below attest. In parallel with the happenings reported here, our Trail Crew continued their work clearing overgrowth and pushing poison ivy away from the trails. Access to Marblehead’s public lands and trails remains an important part of the updated Open Space and Recreation Plan, and with good reason. In spite of a run of hot weather in early July, many people were out enjoying these walking trails. Combined with the former Railroad Right of Way, which author and photographer Dennis Curtin includes in his description of an “Emerald Necklace”, Marblehead has nearly ten miles of paths suitable for walking and for gaining a different perspective of our seaside town.
