May Meeting

We were excited to have Tampa Bay Times reporter Ben Montgomery as our speaker this month.  Ben’s book, Grandma Gatewood’s Walk: The Inspiring Story of the Woman Who Saved the Appalachian Trail, was published last year.  Grandma Gatewood was the first woman to hike the entire Appalachian Trail alone.  Ben was given unprecedented access to her diaries, trail journals and correspondence and also interviewed surviving family members and those she met along her hike.  We held a longer than normal business meeting to discuss past and upcoming trips. Then Ben shared with us his adventure of writing about Grandma Gatewood. It was interesting to hear about her experiences and some of the material he acquired to write the book. Thanks very much Ben!

Annual Party

Everyone had a great time today at our annual party.  We have such great fun with the white elephant gift exchange especially as more gifts seem to show up each year that will come back next year.  The little stool had not been seen for a few years and showed back up today.  There was great fear of an appearance of the red bra but I don’t think it was in any gifts.  The singing fish and the ugly sweater came back and I am sure will be back next year.

In addition to all the fun with the gift exchange. we all enjoyed some great food and an afternoon with good friends.

Pictures to come and we are looking forward another year of fun adventures.

No monthly meeting in January

Hey everyone.  Don’t forget that we don’t have a monthly meeting in January. Instead we have our annual party.  Our monthly meetings will resume in February. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, February 18th, at Bill Jackson’s in Pinellas Park.  The meeting will start around 6:30.

For our trips in January, we will be joining the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition on two legs. One will be on the Rainbow River and another will be on the Withlacoochee River.  The number of attendees on these trips is limited. If you plan to attend and haven’t already contacted Carolyn, please do so.

Looking forward to lots of fun adventures in 2015.
