Annual First Day Hike 2019 submitted by Tina Redmond, Chairman
The weather was great for our annual First Day Hike, 40 degrees and no rain or snow! Eighty attendees were able to go on two different hikes, an easy family friendly hike and one that was longer and more strenuous.
We had raffles for the first time and they seemed to be quite a hit! There were three different prize drawstring bags containing teddy bears, field guides, various NYS Park hoodies, t-shirts, baseball caps and a free one year membership. The three winners are: Keith Berger, Bryn Carr, and Pete and Tina Greco. Welcome to Friends of Clark Reservation!
Between raffle tickets and teddy bear sales, we raised approximately $200.00!
A huge THANK YOU to our donors! Refreshments: Green Hills Farms, Gordon Heisler, and Amy Doherty Fleece headbands: NYS Parks
