Report by Currie Marr – Despite sub-freezing temperatures 13 brave hikers rang in the New Year by hiking 2 miles on meadow paths near Rod and Sally’s home on Franklin Mountain. Along the way Rod pointed out where a proposed gas pipeline would cross property near them. After the hike we all entered the warmth of the Hebbard’s lovely home thoroughly enjoying their 12 foot Christmas tree, 5 different soups, confections, and ice cream. The outing was a delightful and energizing “Yin-Yang” experience. Thank you Sally and Rod for such a fine introduction to 2015! Photograph by Pam Lea.
