April 8, 2023: Boggsville Clean-up Day

By Larry Bourne

Boggsville clean up day is rapidly approaching, and I am hoping for a warm day to get the site ready for this season’s visitors. For you who have not been to Boggsville as of late you will have a pleasant surprise. Both houses have had some major remodeling done, even new roofs.

Most of the smaller trees that blocked the view of the site have been removed so the site is very open. There are still some small trees around the rental house that need to be removed, and that is our task for this year. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but if we get a few people there with chainsaws we can have the work done in a couple of hours. All we have to do is cut them down and cut them into 6 foot lengths. There is going be a youth group there to drag the trees off and stack them up out of the way to be hauled off later. Most of these trees are only 8 inches thick, but there are few bigger ones.

Both the Boggs house and the Prowers house need cleaning as usual along with the restrooms. Work is being done on both houses so some rooms may not be able to be cleaned. 

There will be coffee and donuts to start off the day, and a meal served at lunch in appreciation for all your hard work.

So bring your chainsaw, gloves, cleaning supplies or whatever so we can do our part in keeping this historic site looking good.
