Welcome to Spring!!
Since the groundhog saw his shadow we are assured of Spring arriving by the time you read this Trailmarker. I look forward to enjoying our club activities with beautiful weather arriving.
I want to join Gail Dempsey in congratulating Gale Magann for her great work with the club's history and encourage other members to step up and fill in where she left off. Please feel free to send in an article and photos about a favorite PHOC hike, paddling/backpacking adventure or other outing you went on that would be of interest to other club members. Speaking of stepping up, I want to thank new board members and officers George Crouse, VP and Joan Heiss, Secretary for accepting these important roles in our club.
Also, I want to thank our Outings Coordinators who have volunteered to serve the rest of this year. Please support these folks and volunteer to lead hikes. The Coordinators for this year are Ken Yates, March/April, Ruth Moss, May/June, Wes O'Brien, July/ August, Lynn Mitchell, September/October, Mark and Connie Prill, November/December and Martha Uberseder, January/February 2025. I would encourage newer members to participate in these roles as a great way to meet members and learn about outing opportunities.
I look forward to working with you all to have a successful 2024 and enjoy the many opportunities for fun, fellowship and outdoor adventures.
