Finally, Spring!

Hike leader Mike Phipps sent this assessment of his April 4 hike on the Appalachian Trail in Orange County: “This past weekend’s hike to Fitzgerald Falls went well!  We had 9 hikers in all; no issues, just smiles!  We did some trail maintenance as the loss of winter snows uncovered much trash…came back home with three bags full! ”

Adrienne,Dave Weiss

At our annual fall picnic, this year held October 5 along the Hudson River at Norrie Point, we honored former chapter chairperson Adrienne Weiss for her decades of loyalty and service to the club. The certificate presented to Adrienne, seen in this photo with husband Dave, reads:

“In recognition for your 40 years of work with the Mid Hudson Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club and for all your efforts and contributions to make the outdoors enjoyable to everyone.”

Congratulations and Thank You, Adrienne!
