Land Trust members Rob Valley, Marianne Valley, Ted Mankovich and Frank Ferro hiked with John on his second “goodbye” hike on Saturday afternoon, August 17. The hike was sort of a lucky make-up for those of us his missed his August 10 “goodbye hike” with Westwoods Trails Committe Chair Paul Proulx and others in Westwoods.
After many years working with the Trails Committee and the Land Trust, and many more as a Guilford resident, John and his wife are departing for Lexington, Kentucky. John, a runner and fitness devotee, is known among us for his spirited trails work. Along with former Land Trust board members Ned Kreidel, who moved to North Carolina, and Rick Conrad, now in Massachusetts, all will be missed.
