Hello Level Walkers,
The 2017 Volunteer Appreciation Dinners for C&O Canal NHP volunteers will be held on the following dates:
Cumberland – Western Maryland Train Station – October 4 – 5:45 to 9:00 p.m.
Williamsport – Springfield Barn – October 5 – 5:45 to 9:00 p.m.
Palisades – Glen Echo Park Bumper Car Pavillion – October 12 – 5:45 to 9:00 p.m.
Select whichever one is appropriate for the area you serve in. As it stands now I will be at all three to meet you and talk about our program. This is an excellent chance to meet some of the NPS people we work with, mingle with your fellow volunteers, and learn about other programs on the park.
If you would like to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 301-745-5810, and include which dinner you plan to attend and how many guests are in your party. Also let them know what program(s) you are with. If you want, you can also let me know, so I will look for you.
I hope to see some of you there!
Also – if you have a level walker report for the period ending August 15th please send it to me soon so I can include it in the September Along the Towpath. It doesn’t need to be lengthy – just the hours, dates, metrics and any unusual findings. Short anecdotal stories are always welcome!
Thanks for the great job you do as volunteers for the C&O Canal NHP!
