LMVG building bridges

The last LMVG workday for the year will be on Sept 29 at Laurel Mountain - more details here

CAT skiing

The annual picnic on August 25 was well attended and less well photographed.  Approximately two dozen PACCSA members enjoyed a variety of activities in Laurel Hill State Park, from grass skiing with classic all terrain skis to hiking and stand up paddleboard, and lots of good conversation around a delightful picnic.  Missed the fun?  Join us next summer.
