Presidents Breakfast tradition continues

March, 2017
By Steve Dean

Our tradition of celebrating the Association presidents and enjoying general fellowship will take place at Bill’s Place in Little Orleans on June 3rd. A reservation form is enclosed in this issue. Breakfast will be served at 9 a.m. The cost is $10 per person. Forms must be received by Wednesday, May 24. 
                After the breakfast, participants can join Steve Dean for a trek to Oldtown to view dragonflies. The C&O Canal NHP has the most diverse variety of dragonflies in the National Park System, and Oldtown is one of the more active spots on the canal. Steve will have some extra dragonfly guides. Contact Steve at editor@candocanal.org or 301-904-9068 for more information about the dragonfly walk
                Some members enjoy camping the night before at Little Orleans Campground, which is near Bill’s. You can make reservations by calling the campground at (301) 478-2325. The campground has a bathhouse and showers. Come and join us!
