Two Year Anniversary

Today is the two year anniversary of the Springwater Trails hiking group.  In those two years, the group has lead 90 hikes (and Char has taken pictures on 75 of those hikes!)Chuck, Duff, Mark, Elaine, Wendy, Linda H, Mac, Phil, Pam, Rick O, Ellen, ?, Linda S,, ?, ?, ?, Char, Julie, Dean, ?, ?, ?, ?

Although I do not have exact counts on the number of hikers, we have averaged 15 to 20 hikers on each Sunday, resulting in a total of 1500 to 2000 hikes being completed by the Springwater Trails.

There are many thank-yous that should be handed out, but I will mention only a few.

First, I have to thank Dean, who invited Linda and I to that very first hike.  Second, we all thank Pam for being the heart and soul of this group for well over the two years we have been hiking (if you don’t know what I mean, please come to any Sunday hike).  And finally, I want to thank Linda and Mac and Duff for hiking with me and being my inspiration for continuing to be a part of this group.

I am sure each of you would mention others, from the original committee members to a particular hiking companion who made one hike memorable.
