On Sunday morning, June 24th,
would you be interested in meeting for a walk and pic nic in the Gatineau Park? Without pressure or obligation, I would like to extend an invitation to students and their families to come out to Meech Valley to walk in the valley, in former pioneer homestead. There is also a cemetery, covered bridge and modern Pioneer-style construction nearby and an Ole Swimming Hole to visit. Bring a picnic lunch and a bathing suit!
Sunday, June 24th, 10:30am, at P16 in the Gatineau Park (near Pine rd and the end of HW 5). AN easy walk with fun stops and lots to explore.
With a forecast of 10mm of rain and possible thunderstorm, I think it best to postpone to Sunday, June 17th.
That said, I will be at P16 Sunday morning in case some hard-core hikers don't get this message and decide to come out.
