Fellow Hikers and Outdoor Activity enthusiasts!    November 2016  from our President Carl

I want to fill you in on some upcoming activities and cover a couple of past events.

At last month’s meeting, Janet Hildebrand did a terrific presentation on her experiences hiking sections of the Appalachian Trail.  Thank you, Janet.

Len Shivok has been leading hikes in the Crew Watershed area and has some more events coming up.  See below for details on the upcoming events.  A big thank you to Len for working hard to produce activities at this time of year, when trails are wet and not all of our members are back in the area.

JoAnn Luce has been leading some hikes closer to home.  Thank you, JoAnn.

I attended the annual Florida Trail Association meeting in DeLand, Florida last month.  This year’s meeting celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Florida Trail Association.  Two members of our chapter, Chuck and Betty Wilson received lifetime achievement awards.  Another member, Jean Bub, received a Trail Worker award.  Congratulations and well deserved, Chuck, Betty, and Jean!  We will have more to say about these awards at our January meeting.              I also picked up some ideas from presenters and participants about how to strengthen our chapter.  I will be sharing those ideas in the next three months.

Check under activities for upcoming adventures.
