Join our church hiking enthusiasts for a fall hike, Sunday, October 29, from 12-1:45 pm, at the Connecticut Audubon Society’s Deer Pond Farm in Sherman.  The Society’s Director, Cathy Hagadorn, will take us on a guided hike on marked carriage trails throughout the Farm.  This hike will be at a moderate pace and skill level.  Please wear appropriate hiking attire and shoes that can get wet, in case we encounter damp areas.
We will carpool from the Church or meet as close to noon as possible at 57 Wakeman Farms Rd.    For those who would like to join us, please contact Suzanne
