CONGRATULATIONS . . . 
This inspiring initiative was noticed by FOX 8 Producer Rachel Inch and aired on their news September 18th.

 
 
Hello Rotarians!
 
Well, since we can't be social in person yet, how about a fun way to be active and social in tandem with your fellow Rotarians?
 
Here is a fun idea I came up with as your Social Chair to participate in the Summit County Metro Parks Fall Hiking Spree together but apart.
 
As Julie Brandle, our Assistant District Governor shared, The Rotary Foundation Trustees and Rotary International Board of Directors have both unanimously approved adding a new area of focus: supporting the environment.  This seems like an opportune time to get out there and reconnect with our local environment,  Maybe a project that supports this focus will come to mind as you are enjoying our park system.
 
This years theme for the Fall Hiking Spree is From Fields to Forest.  This year, the Fall Hiking Spree celebrates the rich history of the properties they proudly manage for our enjoyment and their successful return to nature. Take a journey on this year’s spree and explore the former farms and fields that are now forests.  
 
As you hit the trails, snap a picture on your trail of choice, pre hike, while on the hike or post hike and send to me,  You can email me, text me or post to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #AkronRotaryHikes
 
Each week I'll collect the photos and post to our Rotary Club of Akron FB Page and our Akrotarian to see your fellow Rotarians out taking advantage of our amazing park system.  
 
Please remember that if you choose to hike with fellow Rotarians while distancing, please keep your distance in your photo!  I will not be featuring photos that don't follow social distancing guidelines.

Anyone who finishes the whole spree, and sends me a copy of their completed form will be entered into a drawing for a Fall Basket of goodies! 
 
Here are the links of the form and trail choices.
