To celebrate NeighborWorks Week, RUPCO has chosen to give Woodstock Commons a “Fit Trail Facelift.” Join us in creating and expanding the existing walkway through Nature. Along with creating a dedicated path to the bridge, we’ll be beautifying the grounds for the neighborhood with plantings and flowers. Bring your garden gloves, rakes and shovels. Feel free to bring “green rooty” donations from your own garden to share. Hot dogs and hamburgers provided for lunch. Work day runs 9a to 1 p.

For more information, call (845)331-2140 ext. 210 or email tcollins@rupco.org.
