December 3 Autumn Bash and Riverwalk

Williamsburg Dam Trail Map

Your celebration-minded co-moderators – Gaby, John, and Neal – will throw a pizza and beer fundraising party at the home of Neal and Susannah Bastek on Saturday, December 3rd on Village Hill in Williamsburg. From 2:00-4:00, Eric Weber, chairman of the Williamsburg Historical Commission will lead us on a guided hike along the new trail that the Williamsburg Woodland Trails Committee created this summer from Ashfield Rd. to the site of the dam that failed in 1874.  It’s a two-mile round trip.  Eric is a  tremendously knowledgeable guide who has amazing photos to show and stories to tell.  We’re lucky to have him aboard.  Then at 5:00, we’ll gather at the Basteks for an Autumn Bash. We’re asking our hikers and party goers to contribute a small donation of $5 to $10 for the design and printing of the upcoming self-guided tour brochure for this walk that we’ll create in conjunction with the Williamsburg Woodland Trails Committee and Williamsburg Historical Commission. Please RSVP, and we’ll send you details.  We already have a dozen or so of you coming and look forward to welcoming many more.

At the bash, we’ll give you a short update on what MRGI has been doing and what’s ahead, but mostly we just want you to enjoy each other’s company and drink in the holiday spirit!  We can’t do any of this without you, and we’re grateful that you’ve been our stout support for so many years.

THANKS from Gaby, Neal, and John!
