This is a story of a group of
teens and college students who belong to the E-Ville Snowmobile Club.
We are so blessed to have this group of young people to come and volunteer their time during their Christmas vacations from their high schools and colleges for the second year in a row. This past Christmas, a group of about 5 youths, worked very hard making trail signs, marking/trimming and cutting brush, fixing wash-outs, repairing bridges, and signing the trails. With the weather every day in the single numbers, never slowed these students down from doing this work. In a week's time, they put in over 100 hours! As you can see from the photos taken, you can sense what a great time they had doing their projects. Rehabilitating the 11 miles of the Long Pond Trail was also a project well done.
Who is the Christmas Club?
Colyer Sigety from Worcester Poly-Tech Institute in Massachusetts.
Erik Ahlquist from University of Maine Fort Kent.
Alex Sigety from Tampa, Florida area high school.
CJ Ahlquist from Scarborough High School, Scarborough ME.
Eric Lienonen from University of Montana.
All were supervised by Ron Ahlquist VP of the club.
Also, part of the team was Beth Sigety, who provided lunches. Birge Sigety provided equipment and tools and Roy McSorley who also provided tools.
To make a club work and work well, it takes all kinds of volunteers, young and older, to lend their different talents and gifts. We want to thank this group of young people for all their hard work and time -- best wishes as you return to your studies -- you all are very valuable by all you offer to your schools and communities. The work of all those mentioned surely made Christmas of 2008 the best gift that E-Ville Snowmobile Club could ever receive.
