Short Description of Activity

A gathering to usher in the New Year. We hiked over 2 miles on the Treasure Loop Trail in Lost Dutchman State Park in the Superstition Mts., and afterwards gathered rocks and other natural items to make a sculpture, which we then put back where we found them. We accompanied this activity with tea and chocolate.


Many members were interested and several of them made it. Hiking seems to be a great draw
for our members. Planning fun along with our work, seems to help draw people in.
