Can you Sponsor a Dig Day?

This is a great way to promote your business while supporting a community driven project. We depend on volunteers to build the trail, and we depend on sponsors to keep our volunteers fed, hydrated, and happy during our work days. If your company is interested in helping MBoSC put on an A+ work day, contact us for sponsorship information.
