New member Tom Warren introduced todays speaker :


Charlie Woodworth, Maine Huts & Trail executive director, took us on a colorful slide presentation through their 45-mile hiking and biking experience in the Carabasset Valley, Flagstaff Lake, Mount Bigelow and Grand Falls areas.




He touted their  comfortable year-round bunk rooms in cozy cabins heated by
solar, propane,  wood stoves and electricity.

He focused on their mountain biking, paddle boating and kyaking.



While Milt was in the old Augusta hospital, Scott Dow dropped in as a part-time pastor, in an effort to cheer him up.  It worked!  There were not enough chairs in the room so we got him a commode, dressed him in the required yellow gown and purple gloves.  It cheered him up.



Betsy Pohl won the big bucks and Phil Davidson the gift certificates.

John Gregory introduced today’s speaker


Colby Professor  Daniel Tortoro  entertained the club with stories about Fort Hallifax in Winslow.  He said the fort was built between 1754-1756 in two phases by Major-General John Winslow and captain William Lithgow.  Among famous people who visited the fort were Benedict Arnold  Paul Revere  and Aaron Burr.


The fort had to be restored after being swept downriver during the flood of 1987.  This was a very interesting talk by Tortoro who has published a book on the forts history called “Fort Halifax, Winslow’s Historic Outpost”
