Volunteer Opportunties

We are looking for volunteers for several projects and events. We hope that you will be able to participate. Past events have included trail clean-ups, parades, staffing BFRT tables at town events and concerts.

Chelmsford Rail Trail Light Maintenance Crew

The Chelmsford Trail Light Maintenance Crew is in the process of being rejuvenated. The trail section breakdown has been revised based on access points and to eliminate isolated and hard to define sections.  New and past volunteers should contact Bob Schneider at trail@setdata.com or by phone at 978-256-1588 to indicate interest in volunteering to cover a section either between the Rt. 3 terminus and Chelmsford Center or between Chelmsford Center and the Westford Town line.  Your interest in helping with this important task is greatly appreciated.

Need Volunteers for newly created Sponsorship Committee

The FBFRT Board of Directors at its Aug-8th meeting approved the creation of a Sponsorship Committee, along with defined goals and structure as a way of garnering business sponsorship. The members of the Sponsorship Committee will be in charge of the logistics of garnering, approving, and implementing sponsorship agreements, as well a fund-raising for those who have the constitution for it. I am looking for volunteers to join me on the new Sponsorship Committee. It will be great way to get more involved with the Friends without a huge time commitment.

Contact me at tmichelman@gmail.com or 978-580-6190 if you are interested. I will make it as fun as possible.
