Mourning the passing of Pat Fletcher

We are saddened to announce that Patrick H. Fletcher, our long-time Trails Chair, passed away earlier this week.

Pat worked tirelessly for the AMC, for our chapter, and for his beloved M-M / New England Trail. As Trails Chair for more than two decades, Pat volunteered countless hours building shelters, maintaining trails, organizing, and working with other local groups to maintain and improve the trails under his purview. In 2009, Pat was a leader in achieving the designation of the New England National Scenic Trail.
