Past Meetup

26 Acts of Kindness #9 - Blaze a Trail!

This Meetup is past

12 people went


This outing is suitable for beginners... Duncaster, the retirement community (not to be mistaken for assisted living) at which I work, has a small hiking (nature) trail that is unmarked. Come join me, and a couple residents, to blaze the trail! Our handiwork will enable more people to enjoy the trail. I will supply the paint (red), stencils and brushes. You will supply the brush strokes and smiles.

As with all Connecticut Hiking Alliance events, please do not use the "no rsvp" unless you previously rsvp'd yes and need to change your plans. We make this request because all rsvp responses become emails to the leaders. If you have not signed up as a yes, then we already know you are a "no" so please conserve on the emails. Other Meetup groups may have a different rsvp preference.

This after work outing will take less than two hours - but be prepared because this time your photo will appear on our website - as usual - but may also appear in local media.

Because Duncaster is close to my heart, I reserve the right to "un" rsvp people who have been previously inactive or have a history of unreliable RSVPs with our group.

Leashed dogs are VERY WELCOME at this event. Duncaster (and I) love dogs.

Equipment and apparel: Bug repellent will be a necessity and you may also wish to wear something that won't be ruined by a splatter or two of red paint. This trail is only 1.5 miles in length... but because of the "photo-opp" it is preferred that you arrive in hiking apparel.

NOTE: Please make any general comments regarding how to improve or alter the overall processes of all the outings in the DISCUSSIONS tab. Requests for autographs should go through my marketing coordinator. Questions and comments to this event should be posted below.
