Thanks for a Great Year at ABATE Acres
By Patrick Sheridan
Land closing 2017 was another successful event at
ABATE Acres. We actually had people leaving early
due to the work list being finished! Everything
well done by a great crew!
I would like to not only thank all the volunteers
that make the land awesome, but pass along some of
the comments I have been receiving throughout the
year. From the time we planted the trees in early
spring, to the Summer Hummer and every BOD meeting
since. The main comment is that the land has never
looked better. I always say thank you for these
comments, but the truth is it takes a team to
accomplish this. Anyone helping in any area at
ABATE Acres should take pride in the fact that the
majority of the membership is extremely happy with
the job we are doing.
Next year will be a busy year with all the trees
to plant and keep watered until they get
established. With each improvement I hope you all
look around and say "I was part of
The only formal events at the land are the Summer
Hummer in June and Family Campout on August, but
there are so many other weekends that can be
enjoyed at the property. Take a look as you are
planning your 2018 schedule and try to fit a few
days in to take advantage of a place you can truly
call your own.
Anyone with property improvement ideas over the
cold season, please get them to someone on the
land or Hummer committee and we will talk about
them. Thank You again!
