Firefly Trail Local Action Committee

Local supporters of the Firefly Trail are encouraged to volunteer in organizing a Winterville Local Action Committee (LAC).  The role of the LAC is to advocate for and enhance popular support of the trail supporting local officials in its maintenance, development as a public resource, and encouraging local use of the trail.  Eventually the Winterville LAC will coordinate with various LACs all along the 39-mile trail corridor.  Interested individuals will find an application here at the City's website which should be submitted to City Hall for consideration by Mayor and Council.

Apply to be on the Firefly Trail Local Action Committee

Community Garden Potluck

The Community Gardens registration potluck will be held on Monday, February 17, at 6 p.m., at Winterville City Depot.

It would be very helpful if anyone who is not planning on gardening with us for the 2020-2021 year could please let us know.  A very brief reply to this email would be great!  I know a few of you have told me already, but a double-check would be good.  You do, of course, have until the end of February to have your garden box(es) ready for a new gardener.
