New Video on Youtube!
Gloria recently produced a light-hearted music video about the many holes of Augusta Bottom Road.  Although the song was written 23 years ago, the song is still relevant today.  Many thanks to Elsie Kresse on violin and vocals, Jade Kresse, vocals, percussion and air uke and to their parents, Kate and Josh Kresse.  Also thanks to Michael Bauermeister & his truck and Tony Carosella for the aerial drone video at the beginning.
New Song:  ‘DIGGIN’ UP THE HONEYSUCKLE”  3:04
This light-hearted song is dedicated to all of the people who are 
tirelessly working to dig up the invasive “Bush Honeysuckle,”  
which is taking over our woodlands and streams.  (To hear the song,
push the triangle at the right --under the photo of the honeysuckle.)
