Planning for September – (Updated Tuesday)

I want to catch you all up with news from Springwater Trails.

Thanks to John Vogel, Springwater Trails is now incorporated in New York State as a not-for-profit corporation.  You will start to see our name appearing as Springwater Trails Inc in the future.  That’s about the extent of the changes you will see, but now Springwater Trails is official.

On September 14th, the annual Fiddler’s Fair and American Craft Show will be held at Sugarbush Hollow.  Springwater Trails has volunteered to manage the parking lot this year, freeing up Bob Radell to chair the Fair committee.  We are depending on the continued support from our members to handle this task.  Please send an email to Joan or use our parking form if you can spend a couple of hours on Saturday the 14th directing cars to parking spots and helping fair patrons onto and off of the bus.  We will need twelve volunteers to each work two hours between 9:30 and 6:00.

Our other task for September is to plan our fall hike schedule.  Check for open dates on our fall schedule here.   Do you have a favorite hike you would like the group to enjoy?  Please let me ([email protected]) know that you will plan that hike or fill out our hike planner form.  Planning a hike can be as easy as selecting a hike from one we have already done, or can require talking to one or two landowners to get permission and then planning a route for a new hike. Whichever hike you would like to plan, please talk with other hikers or with an officer and you will get help with the planning.
