Saturday was a beautiful day to do some community yard work.
Volunteers worked Saturday afternoon to place stones in the new Community Labyrinth taking shape on the corner of Pine and Ashland in Doylestown Borough. The land is owned by the neighboring James A.

The Community Labyrinth is being created next to the Michener Museum on land owned by the museum. But it was funded by private donations and has been designed and will be maintained by volunteers.
