SO Monthly Meeting

Tuesday, October 10, 5:50 pm

5:50-6:20 PM: Social half hour with refreshments.
6:20-7:40 PM: Meeting and presentation.
Presentation title: Great communities build great trails; Great trails build great communities.
Speaker: Mary Monroe with Durango Trails
Presentation summary: On the hikes, runs or mountain bike rides you enjoyed this year, did you notice the hundreds of downed trees that were removed from trails ranging from the Colorado Trail to Dry Fork, Hoffheins to Engineer Mountain and Pass Trail, and many others in the area?
Did you appreciate the trail work done in Horse Gulch, Overend, Dalla, Twin Buttes, The Colorado Trail, Engineer Mountain, and Missionary Ridge? Did you enjoy the new trails built on Animas Mountain?
Maybe new trail signage helped you find your way, or you learned something new through the stewardship and educational campaigns, social media messages, newsletter stories, and other information that makes our community aware of what is going on in our nearby trail networks.
Durango Trails tackled these and many other projects during the 2022 season, as it has every season for the last 30 years. We cannot do this work alone; it takes great communities to build great trails!
Speaker bio: Mary Monroe brings a wealth of knowledge in strategic planning and marketing plus a love of trails to the Durango Trails organization. Mary and her family all participate faithfully in trail work, and enjoy nordic skiing, hiking 14ers, trail running and mountain biking. Marys favorite trails are looped networks where every memory of trail work speaks to her.

Please note:
Our September 12th picnic was pretty much a washout. The few hearty souls who showed up contributed $60 and a few items to our charity partner the Volunteers of America, Durango Community Shelter and Safehouse. We would like to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to contribute, so we are asking that you bring your donations to the October meeting. The shelter could use men’s or women’s shoes in various sizes, or twin-size comforters. The safehouse could use ear buds (headphones), water bottles, pocket size note pads, baby carriers, art supplies (water colors, paper, colored pencils), or disposable Tupperware. If you wish to make a check donation, make the check to Volunteers of America Colorado and note on the check Durango shelter or safehouse. Hope to see you on the 10th.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me.
