In honor of International Women’s Day, all the female finees got to pass their fines. This was great for everyone except Dave Webb who got to pay more than his fair share. 

Also in honor of Daylight Savings Time, Bob gave a quizz on DST as a reminder for everyone to “Spring Forward."

Intro:  Dave Webb introduced today's speaker, Tom Davis from the Pickaway Parks Board.

  • Tom showed a variety of flora and fauna from around the county. Those include eagles, cyotes, beavers and groundhogs. He even had a section of tree that the beavers had “harvested.” 
  • Tom gave a quick review of the current park projects and the hopes for the future. Those include completing (clearing, bridging, and paving) the Pickaway Trail, adding to the Roundtown Trail, and adding trails in other areas.
  • The Park District hopes to be able to provide grants to the local parks totalling $100,000 next year.
