Chapter Chair Report
For my first newsletter I would like to introduce myself ...
For my first newsletter I would like to introduce myself and tell you why I'm involved in the Adirondack Mountain Club. I live in Lake George with
my husband, Tim. We moved here in 1986 and raised 2 children here who are now adults. I retired from teaching elementary special education in 2014 after 34 years.
I am very fortunate to have spent all my summers, since I was 5 years old in Old Forge. I believe this is where I learned to love the outdoors
and appreciate all it has to offer.
I became involved with the club first as a member then as the Fire Tower Challenge (FTC) correspondent in 2011.
Being the FTC correspondent has been very enjoyable and rewarding. I get to read hiking journals that tell of great adventures and
I also get to send completers their hard earned patches.
I want to continue to be involved in the club to help others learn to love and appreciate all the Adirondacks have to offer.
It is important to me that people are educated on staying safe and on leaving no trace behind whether they are hiking, biking, walking,
paddling, camping or whatever they might be doing. I hope to meet and see many of you out on the trails and lakes.
