      The Graham Equestrian Center participates with ServeFest 2011!

      Saturday, May 14th, 2011
      The Graham Equestrian Center is excited to participate with ServeFest for the second year in a row. Eighteen volunteers helped to replace fence posts, clean up the arena, muck run-in sheds, and clean up limbs and debris in 2010 and GEC is looking forward to a year of more success! This year's project will entail rebuilding a section of trail that has become badly damaged due to rain water run-off and over use. The project will include re-routing the trail to prevent water damage and promote environmental sustainability.
      ServeFest is in its second year in the Baltimore area and has expanded to include Anne Arundel, Cecil, Howard, Harford and Baltimore Counties as well as Baltimore City this year. ServeFest encompasses a day of service organized through local churches with projects ranging from assisting food banks to planting gardens. For more information, or to sign up for a project visit www.servefestmd.org The Graham Equestrian Center project is listed in the Baltimore County Central section of projects.
