Shoreline Greenway Trail

Tuesday, May 11, at 6:15 PM, Environmentalist Speaks at 8th Annual Meeting at Guilford Free Library…

The public is invited to join Shoreline Greenway Trail members to celebrate a year of accomplishments in each Trail town and DONATE A BIKE FOR HAITI. At the 6:15 PM business meeting, Shoreline Greenway Trail members will hear reports from chairman Chip Angle, from trail development chair Jack Wood, and from resident directors of East Haven, Branford, Guilford and Madison, the four towns that the Trail will traverse. Elections of directors will be held.

The Program will begin at 7:00 PM with environmentalist Judy Preston presenting her excellent slide show, Nature and Health, How Nature Sustains Us”. She will focus on studies that have shown how exposure of children and adults to the outdoors can improve their health and longevity, and offer balance to their “wired” lifestyle. Judy is founder and director of the Tidewater Institute, working collaboratively to protect and manage the Connecticut River estuary region, and is a founder of the Old Saybrook Land Trust. Refreshments will be served.

Dave Fowler of BIKES FOR KIDS of Old Lyme will speak about their efforts to collect used bikes for kids in earthquake devastated Haiti. As champions of bicycling as a healthy activity, Shoreline Greenway Trail is pleased to help their drive. SIGN UP AHEAD TO BRING A BIKE TO DONATE JUST BEFORE THE ANNUAL MEETING ON MAY 11TH between 5:30 and 6:30 PM. Dave will be there at the top of the Guilford Green with his pickup truck to receive donated bikes just prior to the Annual Meeting at the Library, which is on the corner. He needs to know how many bikes. So, if you have a gently used bike (not rusted and broken) please sign up by calling 203-453-2271 and leave your name, telephone and message bike to donate, OR send same message in an email to info@shorelinegreenwaytrail.org with bike to donate in title. And thank you!
