On Saturday, Nov. 16, members of the Westminster Road Runners Club, as well as friends and family, will honor the memory of Terry Burk on the Wakefield Valley Community Trail.

The observance will be held near the Tahoma Farm Boulder Park and historic Fenby Farm Quarry and Lime Kiln Park at 730 Tahoma Farm Road in Westminster.

"Over the years the eight-foot wide paved Wakefield Trail, the city's first hiking and biking trail, has developed one leg at a time, inspired in part by the legacy of Burk, who ran with the Road Runners Club for many years. Today, the 2.1 mile linear park trail extends from Long Valley Road to Uniontown Road. Planning began in earnest for the trail in 1994." http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-eagle-archives-1103-20131111,0,434181.story

Westminster Mayor Kevin Utz, members of the Westminster Common Council and a fellow runner, Abby Gruber, Westminster's recreation and parks director, have joined with Community Foundation executive director Audrey Cimino, and other members of the runners club in planning the event…. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-eagle-archives-1103-20131111,0,434181.story

730 Tahoma Farm Road: In a November 7, 2013 article I wrote for the Baltimore Sun, http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-eagle-archives-1103-20131111,0,434181.story, I reported, "Over the years the eight-foot wide paved Wakefield Trail, the city's first hiking and biking trail, has developed one leg at a time, inspired in part by the legacy of Burk, who ran with the Road Runners Club for many years.

Okay, well anyway; as old man winter approaches, there is arguably no prettier season in Carroll County than the vibrant tree leaves of fall. This is when, for a short period of time, trees are allowed to act-out and show some additional passion with a dazzling wardrobe of color.
