Our Outreach Program
by Alice Kruse, Chair of Outreach Committee
Someone asked me on a hike why we collect cans or who was Louise McDonough? The money collected goes into a fund to introduce children to the outdoors and/or maintain trails. For many years we have contributed CVNP scholarships for inner city children to attend overnight camp. Louise was the first person in our club to reach 50,000 miles in November 1999. We also support the Buckeye Trail in memory of Emily Gregor, a member who lobbied for more hiking trails across the U. S..
