The Catholic Church in New London was a wonderful host for many years and we sincerely appreciate the tremendous effort Jean LaChance made every year to make the Annual Meeting an event that many would look forward to attending. This year is shaping up to be just as entertaining, so mark your calendar for the best potluck and lecture in the territory.
Choose from a host of winter hikes on the SRK Greenway. All hikes are free and open to the public. Whether you are interested in exploring the greater Lake Sunapee Region, or you just want to get out on a trail with others – there is something for everyone!
Be sure to contact the listed trip leader at least one day in advance to register your interest and get the details on meeting place and time. Always carry a substantial supply of water, a snack, and layers of clothing to prepare for possible weather conditions. Winter hikes can mean anything from snowshoes to microspikes or skis — make sure that you are prepared with the appropriate gear and clothing.
