2021 November President’s Message
Hike Across Delaware
The twenty-sixth annual Hike Across Delaware took place on Saturday, November 6th, 2021. It was a spectacular fall day of brilliant sunshine. 180 registered for the event. Hikers walked fifteen miles along the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal across the entire state from Chesapeake City Maryland to Delaware City, Delaware. Participants came from several states to take on the challenge and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. All were happy to find tasty, satisfying refreshments at the ten-mile marker and most were happy to rest weary legs and feet at the finish line. 31 Wilmington Trail Club volunteers shined a spotlight on the club once again demonstrating a recipe for success that includes selfless dedication and tireless teamwork. A heartfelt thanks goes out to New Castle County Executive Matthew Meyer whose office provided a community development grant to defray costs as well as to all who participated in the event!
Please mark your calendars and plan to join us for the twenty-seventh annual Hike Across Delaware scheduled for Saturday, November 5, 2022.
Save the dates for:
End To End—April 9th
Annual Meeting/Banquet—April 23rd
Hike Across Delaware—November 5th
AT Supervisor needed
Jan King graciously agreed to temporarily fill the At Supervisor role. Jan held the position for a decade, and we need a permanent replacement. If we do not have a replacement prior to January, we will have to begin working with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy to transfer our duties to another organization. Please contact me.
In October Rosa Watson completed 50 years of WTC membership, and she was awarded Emeritus Membership. Please congratulate Rosa for her dedication to WTC.
