Faith United Methodist Church,
899 Dorset St, South Burlington, VT 05403
$8 for adults. Kids free. Guests welcome.
Join the GMC Burlington Section for our 2018 Annual Meeting. Be on hand to hear about Long Trail updates and to vote in new members to the Executive Committee. Then enjoy our speaker, James Blair who will present “The Past is Prologue”. James has been a photographer for National Geographic for 35 years and his talk will feature photos and discussion about our national parks. Are we are poised to repeat the same environmental mistakes of the Reagan-era under then interior secretary James Watt? How is it that ’the environment’ has become a political football, something that we can ill afford?
James is a National Fellow of the Explorers Club.
Don’t forget to bring your own plate, eating utensils, and mug. Lasagna and garlic bread will be served, plus potluck extras. When planning your potluck dish, please bring enough for 3-4 people. Here are the potluck assignments, by first letter of last name
T-Z Beverage (alcoholic beverages aren’t permitted on church property.)

Or tell us who and how many adults and children are coming, and enclose a check made out to ‘GMC Burlington Section’ and mail to:

Burlington, VT 05408
(This was incorrectly listed as Mave Kim in Ridgelines; the cost is also $8 and not the $10 listed there, and there will be no live music … sorry for the confusion).
Sunday January 28th 2018
The GMC Burlington Section is hosting a potluck on the Sunday at Bolton Lodge. All are welcome. You do NOT need to be a GMC member to attend. The more the merrier. No RSVP need. Meet at about 12:30 at the restored Bolton Lodge for an informal potluck. No need to RSVP. Please bring a snack or dish to share, and a cup or mug and spoon. If you bring something hot, it has to be in a pot you can put on the wood stove.
Access Bolton Lodge by following the Broadway Trail from Bolton’s Nordic and Sports Center (a 1.5 mile downhill hike or ski) or via the Catamount Trail from where it heads north from the Bolton Valley Access Road (about 2/3 of a mile uphill hike or ski). The Lodge is on this Bolton Valley Nordic map lower-left hand corner.
Parking at the Bolton Nordic Center? Afternoon tickets go on sale at 12:00.
See a video of the re-opening of Bolton Lodge on December 15th 2017:
Note that guests are welcome to rent the GMC’s Bolton Lodge, Wheeler Pond Camp and Bryant Camp. Details here.
If anyone wants to overnight at Bolton Lodge on Sunday night, please contact Ted Albers.
