2017 Spring Social - May 28


Our Club is hosting our annual SPRING SOCIAL on May 28th. With spring firmly set, the smell and beauty of nature will rejuvenate all of our senses! We're inviting you to join us for a HIKE and POTLUCK. We'll start this great day at the Woodford Community Centre (please arrive before 2:00pm) where we can drop off our potluck dish and car pool to the start of our hike. We will be hiking the Bayview Escarpment Side Trail - a 4.5km trail - in the Bayview Escarpment Provincial Nature Reserve (Map 30, Loop 6). If you don't want to drop by at Woodford Community Centre first, there's parking at m.p. 54.9 (BT trail book v.28), or on St. Vincent-Sydenham Townline between Sideroads 24 and 27. We'll start our hike at 2:30pm. As usual, with your delicious potluck dish, please bring your own plates and utensils. We're looking forward to see you and spend a few fun hours together.
