The Spring rainy season brought several severe thunderstorms that left Lake Grapevine above flood level all summer. Trophy Club Park has been closed to regular traffic since June due to high water levels in the park, and as water continues to recede debris is left littering the park.

Registered volunteers will receive an official “Restore TCP: Debris Crew” hat!…
