I just want to thank all of our
members and volunteers for making 2007 a very productive
year. We had many successful events and programs, as
well as a great year for our outings!
I want to give
a special thank-you to the outgoing Outings Chair,
Dave Dorsky. He reports that "the Sunday outings
have seen a tremendous growth in diversity of hikes
offered. Our hikes again included a vast area that
encompasses trails from Mohican Forest down to Great
Seal and John Bryan parks.
This diversity is also matched
by the variable length of hikes, ranging from 3 to
12 miles. This wide range allows us to attract more
participants with greater variations in hiking abilities
as well as interests." Thank you for your hard
work, Dave, and thanks to all of the volunteers who
lead the hikes.
I also want to thank Pat Marida
for organizing all the programs this past year and
Ken Johnsen and Shirley Nienkark for doing an outstanding
job with calendar sales. 2008 is sure to be another
productive year for the Group, but only with your help
and involvement, so I hope to see you out there!
