The Jeff Shoup Walk: The Sequel

Last week, an alert reader emailed me about the Jeff Shoup Nature Path.

Two days ago “06880” ran a short story about the disrepair of the path near the Riverwalk and Levitt Pavilion, by the Saugatuck River.

Within minutes, John Karrel volunteered to organize a clean-up. Prill Boyle and Clark Ruff soon signed up to help.

This afternoon they brought shovels, rakes and themselves. Within an hour and a half, they’d worked magic — not only on the path, but nearby surroundings too.

“It’s not ready for a House & Garden shoot,” John says. “But it’ll do, at least until the Levitt rebuilding efforts begin in a few weeks.”

He’s way too modest. He, Prill and Clark — none of whom knew each other before today — worked fast.

They worked hard and well.

Most importantly, they worked for Jeff Shoup — and for Westport.
