FMCPT Trail Sentinels.......... On Wednesday, December 14 at 6:30 pm there will be a Trail Sentinel meeting to be held at the Hurt-Battelle Memorial Library, 270 Lilly Chapel Rd, West Jefferson.

We will be discussing and demonstrating how members can log onto the sentinels Yahoo calender. Hopefully Mike O'Reily will have a sample of the vest we have proposed in from the vender. Tools will be distributed to members that have completed all the training requirements. Ray Gonzalez will review the status of the members training courses.

All members are encouraged to attend and if you know of anyone that is interested in participating in this program please invite them to come. I look forward to seeing you all on the 14th.

Best regards, Rodger Lynch
