Have your own snowshoes? Have you had any adventures yet? Join Katherine on February 16th at 10am for a guided snowshoe of YCFGA property. We will be snowshoeing about 1-2 miles, with anticipated completion time of 1-2 hours. This event is free and open to the public. The group will meet inside Stickney lodge for an introduction to YCFGA and a short briefing. We will have coffee, hot chocolate and donuts on sale that day as well!
Please note that you will need to supply your own gear. Snowshoes required, trekking poles recommended. Remember to layer your clothing for the weather and be prepared. Because this is our first snowshoe event, we ask that you leave your furry companions(dogs) at home, the exception being service dogs.
We reserve the right to postpone this event based on weather conditions.
Any questions on this event can be directed to Katherine via Messenger or emailing email@example.com.
A Membership Chairperson – We are seeking a new member to chair our Membership Committee as our present chairman (Dan Strycharz) has asked to be replaced after 3 years so he may consider other active roles in YCFGA. Dan will continue as chairman through the present renewal period and will mentor the incoming chair-person as much as needed, all current records and processes will be explained and transitioned to the new chair-person. This can easily be a multiple person position, depending how the new chair-person wants to handle this position. Time commitment is generally a few hours per month, but more during renewal season (Oct-Jan). You can review the By-Laws for specifics on membership activities or contact Dan (firstname.lastname@example.org, or 207-351-6314) for more information. A great opportunity for all members!
