Bread Loaf Section's YAC ended its inaugural year in July 2013. The outings, led by Andrea Kane, were an outstanding success with young families in our area. Ever since the Kane family moved to Peacham, we've been looking for a new leader to continue this program, which features monthly, fun & educational outdoor adventures. Learn more about Bread Loaf's YAC.
