The nature of a working ranch is that there is always work to be done. Xenophon is no exception and keeping the center in tip top shape requires many hours of labor. On Saturday, June 20, 2015, over 25 volunteers braved a very warm day to provide those necessary hours. There was no weed on the sensory trail that was safe that day, as the volunteers manned shovels and weed whackers and went to work. Our own board president, Mark Caron, was quite the sight, hacking away with his machete. The noodle forest was repaired, the chains and chimes fixed, the bird cages lowered, and more bark added to the experiential pathway. Those without the killer instinct for weeds attacked the fences with an armor of fresh white paint. Our dependable office cleaner, Silvia Coburn, showed up with rags and spray in hand, and the dust was no match for her. Not a nook or cranny was left untouched. A huge thank you goes out to all who came to work that day, including the National Charity League mothers, dads and daughters who came and participated.
