You're welcome. We will have patrols back on the MBT this spring and are looking for people to come out and ride with us. We had a great time with the residents from 5D that came out twice a week to help make the trail a safer place for activities. We also enjoy our walks with the Hanover/Bates residents at First & O street, NW on Thursday evening. The residents there are fantastic.
