FLASH!!

     The Dale's Ridge Trail and a sloped area near the house, have been closed until further notice due to the risks posed by great numbers of dead and dying ash and elm trees.  The UCHS plans to have an educational program this spring on the emerald ash borer and the devastation that it has wrought.  Notice of that program will be out when the date, time and place are set.
