  • 2012 ADKHP Foundation Annual Meeting

    Hello friends,

    I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself . Many may not know me, but I am part of the ADKHPF team that helps drive these sites, and more importantly, the charitable side of things that go along with the formation.

    I just got back from Keene, where the Foundation -Board of Birectors- met for our annual meeting. It was a very productive meeting and we are excited to enter the new year with an enhanced agenda to move us forward. In order reach our lofty goals for the next year or so, we'll certainly need the help of a few of good men and women from the forums. In the days and weeks ahead, you may be getting a call from one of the Foundation leaders to help out. We hope that you take that opportunity. You may even feel you have some qualities that will help us more forward and want to volunteer to come forward to help. either way, we welcome your efforts and hope that you can help move us to the next level

    Soon, we'll put out the minutes of the meeting which will get into more of the specifics, but for now, I just wanted to share our excitement for the future. In the past 4 years, we've given out over $25,000 hard earned $$ to wilderness projects and we look forward to giving even more money away.

    Cool Tim.

    I find it amazing how you and Scott are able to work with those geriatric folks you are on the executive board with. It really takes a special kind of person to devote such time to the elderly. Do you have to speak slowly so they understand?

      Hmm - I must have some folks fooled about my advancing years.

        50 is the new 30 Scott!!!

        I was talking more about how Neil and Jack still get out there all the time. Jack with his carrying construction supplies, and Neil with all those bushwhacks. I sure hope I can still do that stuff when I'm in my 80's.

          I hope you can also, speaking for the two old guys we rely heavily on the youth movement of the board, those little wippersnappers are really the cats pajamas.
          BTW could you use a larger font when posting anything relating to Neil or me. You know at our age the eye's are not what they used to be.

          Seriously we look forward to the continued support of the forum members and strive to do more for the forest preserve.

              I generally don't find it too difficult to get the old guys to the meeting (what the hell else do they have to do), but when we plan a pre-meeting hike, I generally assume that I have to supply the "wicking" Depends garments or they won't agree to hike with me.

              What's a guy to do.

                I'm pretty sure that at least one of the old fogies still gets it together to do a hike now and again.

                All kidding aside it was a very productive meeting. Clearly, the reach of the foundation is dependent upon the degree to which we succeed in inspiring you, the forum members to commit some of your resources to the Adirondacks.
