Mile 21.0 — Division 9 — Elev. 670 ft.
The outstanding event on our fall calendar was of course the dedication of the new Cascade Shelter at Duck Brook built last summer by the LT Patrol, including three generation of Buchanans. 86 people and several dogs turned out for the big day, including a photographer from the Burlington Free Press, resulting in a large feature with many many pictures the next week. Out of town members included past presidents of the main club, John Vondell and Ben Rolston, and at least four sections other than Burlington were represented. Gerry Grow had made a beautiful sign for the shelter; Don Havens, in charge of the event, served cider and doughnuts to all after Roy had christened the shelter with some strong Essex Junction water and his usual unforgettable comments.
