Volunteers from the U.S. Army, Erica Baker, Sheila Lane, Lydia Ruff, Kevin Watts, Angela Mojica, Donna Hamlin and Lisa Spruiell, worked on Saturday, Dec. 13, to clear invasive Kudzu, Chinaberry and Japanese Honeysuckle from the area surrounding Marumsco Creek on E Street in Woodbridge. This Community Development project, started in partnership with the Prince William County Public Works Department in July 2014, has engaged dozens of volunteers to remove foliage, till the soil, construct rip-rap check dams to direct water run-off and prepare for tree planting in the fall by volunteers from the Virginia Cooperative Extension office. The work is helping mitigate some curb and gutter run off before it reaches Marumsco Creek. Special thanks to Rodrigo Vargas, Miranda Vargas and Shawna Bowers for providing lunch for the volunteers! We appreciate the support of  Transurban and Fluor for the work we do in Eastern Prince William County!

And At A Home Repair…

Joshua Burch has volunteered with us before and this time he brought two of his Air Force buddies, Christopher Carlson and Nana Opoku, to work on Thursday, Dec. 11, at Jack Cochran’s home repair project. Jack is a U.S. Army veteran, himself, but he wasn’t alone because a fourth volunteer, Eric Frankwitt, also serves in the Army! Joe Flint rounded out the team for Construction Crew Leader, John Blake. Here’s a link to more photos and Jack’s Family Story.
