Round the Refuge
Hi folks.  Been one of them great busy days !!!!  I only got a few secs here but did want to stop in and say hello!!! 

I got a friend here in Orange, Virginia who wants to start a plant business.  She’s got the know how and the entrepreneurship and she needs a partner and some equipment.  Interested?  Have a big wood chipper, band saw, wood mill and or 40-45 hp tractor you’d like partner with, sell or even give to somebody to start up a biz??  If so let me know and I’ll put you in touch!!! 

If you’re interested in working on Rabbit Rotunda Roof II, I believe it’s been changed from Saturday to Sunday - contact me so we’re sure to get you in on the right day!!! 

Coming to Volunteer Appreciation day Saturday?  Please RSVP now!!! 

I hear more thunder out there!!!  So so so much rain last night.  Happy Ducks!!!
