More North Country Pursuits

Today I attended the North Country Trail Association board of directors meeting. I'm no longer a member, but I attend as a guest when I can. I just can't vote. That was in Grand Rapids. No pictures... How interesting is a bunch of people sitting at table in a hotel, right?

Following the meeting, some of the folks went to Lowell for refreshments at the NCTA Headquarters and to watch the Lowell Christmas Parade. So that's what I'll share. Not great pictures... it was dark, I'm short, etc, etc. So, you get some people under the NCTA sign, and some people watching a decorated truck. Hey, this isn't a photography blog today. It's just sharing good times with good people.

And I spent the rest of the evening chatting with Bruce and Linda, all getting to know each other better. Bruce is the NCTA Executive Director, and they invited me to stay with them for the weekend. Thanks, "guys!"

Jackie- We were only lightly bundled. It was above freezing. I couldn't imagine needing an air conditioner in December!

Ann- I think they are a very interesting reflection of what is important to small towns

Dennis- I think he must have known because they sure were following him close. Maggie, the dog who was there.

I found that NCTA office in Lowell by accident we were walking along the sidewalk on the way to the restaurant beside the river. I felt a little bit connected because I knew what it meant. :)

Chuck- Little by little we are educating folks to know what and where the North Country Trail is. Thanks for telling me this.
