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!
This year, we’ll be holding Paddlefest in Kingston in partnership with Kenco. June 14.
More than 30 attendees learned map and compass skills at a workshop jointly sponsored by our chapter and the NY-NJ Trail Conference. Hank Osborn, East Hudson Program Coordinator for the Trail Conference, taught the class, which was held at the Poughkeepsie Day School library.
Map and Compass skills are useful when bushwhacking, when one gets disoriented, and when the batteries die or signal is unavailable for hand-held GPS devices and phones.
