Hello Level Walkers,

Thanks for your efforts out on the towpath! It’s starting to get busy out there. Thanks too for those of you who have responded to me on requests to update your volunteer status and service agreements. I am not always able to respond to emails, but your responses are appreciated.

Thanks, Steve
