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.

Are you looking for great local things to do, and new activities to try? Please come and see what AMC Berkshire is all about, or come see old friends!

It's all happening on Saturday, March 23 at 6 PM at the Florence Civic Center at 90 Park Street in the center of Florence (directions). We’ll check out this historic building and setting, new to us. Ideally, we'll get a chance to socialize outdoors on the lovely wrap-around porch. We’ll have trip leaders and committee tables to show members and visitors alike where we’ve been, and show how you can get out on the trails, rivers, lakes, and mountains around us. There will also be folks from the Appalachian Trail Committee and Noble View Outdoor Center to talk about the fun of getting involved with trail work and outdoor education.
