New Year’s Day Hike – Jan. 1, 2019

Meet at the church at 1:30 p.m. Jan. 1, 2019 for the annual New Year’s Day hike. Join us for an interesting and energetic walk in the good company of esteemed UU members. This is a chance to get off the couch, take a break from screen addictions, and burn off holiday calories.

The length and route of the walk will depend on the weather and who joins us, but the tentative plan is to hike at Three Creeks Conservation Area. Halfway through the hike the group will stop and build a small campfire. Bring nibbles to share.

If you have questions, contact Peter Holmes at 573-239-7789 or by email.
