Ah, life at the canoe trail is beginning to take on the wonderful chaos that we call summer. For example, in the short span between 6 pm on Thursday, June 4 and 9 am Saturday, June 6, I get to travel from Portland, Maine to Island Pond, Vermont as co-host of two different, fun events. Let the road tripping begin – and please join me for either or both events!
Thursday, June 4, 6 pm: Paddlers Film Fest at Southern Maine Community College in Portland, co-hosted with our good partners at the Maine Island Trail Association (MITA). We will feature our 2009 line-up of paddling films, debuted at our NY Paddler Film Fest in April. Information about both NFCT and MITA will be available, and paddling inspiration will abound.
Saturday, June 6, 9 am: June 6 is National Trails Day, one of the high holidays of the trails community, so it’s a fitting day for the dedication of a new trailhead kiosk in Island Pond, Vermont. Join us at the Island Pond Town Park for a brief event showcasing the partnership that created this kiosk, a ceremonial ribbon cutting, and prepared statements from Vermont’s Senators and Congressman. And doughnuts.
