Tomorrow! - Hike at Burr Oak and Free Screening of New Ora Anderson Film, Plus Free Hot Cider

If that headine hasn't got you clearing your schedule already I'm not sure if there's any hope for you dear rambler. Tomorrow is the final event of the season for Little Cities of the Forest and they've pulled out all the stops to make it a great one!

With another chance to see the amazing film Ora Anderson: Soul of the Woods (which makes a great gift by the by) in the comfort of beautiful Burr Oak Lodge, a crisp autumn hike, and a capper of hot cider, cocoa, and comraderie; tomorrow will truly feel like an early present this holiday season. Check out the announcement below from Travis Neely President of the Little Cities of the Forest Chapter of the North Country Trail Association for more information. Then get ready to remember why Appalachia is the place to be, all year round.

We'll be having our final event of the year next Saturday, Dec. 12, and it should be a good one. We'll be meeting at the Burr Oak Lodge at 10:00, where Jean Andrews will be presenting the DVD (and booklet) 'Ora Anderson: The Soul of the Woods,' which she helped produce.

If you missed the premiere screening at the Dairy Barn recently, here's your second chance to see it, and you don't want to miss this one. If you were at the premiere, I think you'll agree with me that it is worth seeing at least twice, and this will likely be a more intimate screening and allow you the opportunity to ask Jean all those questions you've been dying to ask about her role in the work. After the film, we'll be heading out for a 2-3 mile loop hike on the section of trail north of the lodge. Then we'll head back to the lodge for some FREE warm drinks, including hot chocolate, coffee, and hot cider; and we'll celebrate all our successes of 2009.

Hope to see you there. Bring appropriate attire for the weather and some snacks for the hike if you think you'll need them. The Burr Oak Lodge is located off of Rt. 78 east of Glouster in case you haven't been there before (map). The entrance off of Rt. 78 is well marked.
