The AuSable Acres/Forks Book Club will meet on Tuesday, January 23, 2018, at 7:30 pm. We will be meeting on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the AuSable Forks Public Library. We all felt that it worked well in the past when we met there.

Our book for January is Leonardo DaVinci by Walter Isaacson. This will be available at the library.

Thanks to Marilou Dooley for arranging this with the library and Lynne Comegys for helping with the key. Looking forward to seeing you there. New members are welcome. Come meet your fellow book lovers.

Time: 8:30 AM

Join us for our fall trail maintenance day. We’ll meet at the Lake Eaton parking lot at 8:30 AM and then gather in teams and disperse to work on different parts of our trail system. Everyone is welcome as we have a list of different projects, some of which don’t include heavy lifting or a need for experience in trail work.

Please wear clothing you don’t mind getting dirty including closed toe shoes and work gloves. We’ll need tools for our work and would appreciate if you could bring any of the following: shovel, garden rake, pick ax, pry bar and loppers.

Bring your own water and lunch as we’ll eat on the trail.

The event is rain or shine and contact Paul at to RSVP or for any questions. Please bring your neighbors and friends as we need all the help we can get!
