[ARCHIVED] Mike Walter is Person of the Month

Ellen Scalettar and Mike Walter


First Selectman Ellen Scalettar recognized Trail Master Mike Walter as the November Woodbridge Person of the Month. Scalettar initiated the Woodbridge Person of the Month recognition program to spotlight the many Woodbridge residents, volunteers and employees who go above and beyond the expected in their dedication and commitment to Woodbridge and its residents.

The Town Trail Master is a volunteer who leads the Town’s maintenance of its hiking trails. Walter regularly leads and organizes trail maintenance days with other volunteers to clear trails of debris and ensure the trails are well blazed.

Walter has served as the Trail Master since 2000, even using his own tools for the maintenance work. He works on all Woodbridge trails, whether they are owned by the Town, the Woodbridge Land Trust or the Woodbridge Park Association.

Recently, Walter helped re-route the Bishop West trail system to divert walkers from Camp Whiting, the Boy Scout camp used for camping trips and other events. Walter was instrumental in ensuring accuracy in the Town’s new trail maps created by the Regional Council of Governments. Those maps are now available on the Town website  and at Town Hall.  

“Woodbridge’s open space and extensive network of walking trails are, for many, a highlight of living in our town,” said First Selectman Ellen Scalettar. “Mike Walter’s long-term volunteerism helps make Woodbridge’s abundant natural beauty available for us all to enjoy. Mike is a responsive and dedicated volunteer. On behalf of all residents, I thank him for his service.”  

If you know a Woodbridge employee, resident or volunteer who’s gone above and beyond expectations, please nominate that person for this award by contacting Betsy Yagla at byagla@woodbridgect.org or 203-389-3403.
