The 2017 GMC Annual Meeting in Addison County was hosted by our Bread Loaf Section on the weekend of June 9-11.

We, the Bread Loaf Section, rock!! Thanks to our more than 30 local volunteers! Their willingness to volunteer during the months of planning & preparation, time and effort dedicated to this weekend is very much appreciated. Even before the event ended, many of us received many thanks and rave reviews from participants -- how much they appreciated all that went into it and how much they enjoyed themselves.

More than 60 members and guests attended our sponsored Taylor Series event entitled "5+ Weeks in Patagonia" presented by Norma Norland of New Haven. (Our sincere apologies for the lack of the appropriate iPad cable to present Norma's photos in sequence as she had planned.) 

Following the event, Norma Norland was inspired to put her presentation in blog form! Norma invites you to view read her public blog nonewsfromhere.blogspot.comto view images (including maps, monkey puzzle trees, gauchos and fabulous views of mountains and trails).
