Recent Event Highlights

     Dec. 16, 20119 - Snowshoe at Hansen's
A wonderful snowshoe through the snow cap trees in the very quiet woods. This was followed by a delicious lunch of three kinds of soups scratch-made by famous chef Nancy.  Good company, good times!


     Nov 2, 2019 – Halloween Scavenger Hunt Hike & Potluck at Perch Lake Shelter. We had a great time visiting and hiking searching for “animals”.  Both teams found most of the critters, but team 2 found one more than team 1.  The potluck was delicious as usual.  We all had a great time renewing friendships


     On June 25th eight members and two guests had a nice paddle from the WI River Rainbow Dam to Newbold park. It was enjoyed by all, but was a short section. Everyone wished it could have been longer.
