by Heather Bessette, Bread Loaf trail manager (2013-14). Her report at the Jan. 25, 2014 GMC Bread Loaf Annual Meeting:
As always, trail crews in the Bread Loaf Section put in their time and hard work during the 2013 season. Work parties occurred on May 18th and October 19th and a total of eleven volunteers put in 60 hours of their time. Additionally, Chip Morgan and Doug McKain put in additional hours replacing puncheon up on Worth Mountain.
Unfortunately, the government shutdown in October made the Fall work party a bit more challenging, but Chip and I plugged away and got done what was needed to prepare the trails for winter.
Due to other commitments I was not able to participate with The Abbey Pond Trail project and yet once again many of our Bread Loaf volunteers were involved with the US Forest Service in the relocation of this trail. Certainly, Chip, Doug, and Kathy Duclos can share more about this.
I would like to thank Chip for his guidance and his continued dedication to trails. He has guided me in my transition as Trails and Shelter Chair and his support and hard work has been invaluable. I also want to thank Ruth Penfield, Doug, and Nancy Morgan for their support and hard work as well. I appreciate all the volunteers who work so hard to maintain our trails and look forward to seeing you all in the spring.
