40th Anniversary Special 40th Anniverary Events Hike Schedule
About 60 people enjoyed the hikes, the speeches and this cake during the launch on Sunday, November 9th, 2014. River (youngest hiker), Karen's granddaughter at age 18 months, kept wanting her socks pulled up, and thought every plant was a flower needing to come home with her. Great weather, great speeches and great fellowship for all.
Our thanks to Shirley and crew who organized the event.
