Thank you to the many, many EHN residents who helped make this such a successful and fun day. It was wonderful to have neighborhood veterans, new families, and happy kids. The task administration was superior this year – and we didn’t think Jim could possibly be more organized, but he beat his own high standards! Food and beverages were much appreciated and we were well sated and hydrated thanks to Faythe. Heroic efforts to launch and ground the spiffy dock by Paul and Steve. Cheery childcare, plenty of tools, and a hugely devoted crew. Our beautiful pond cannot be maintained without you all. Thank you again and again and ENJOY!
