We are less than three weeks away from the Green Mountain Club’s 106th Annual Meeting! This year’s meeting, hosted by GMC’s Northeast Kingdom Section, will be heldon Friday and Saturday, June 10-11, at Lyndon State College in Lyndonville. The Annual Meeting brings section members, volunteers, and GMC staff together every year in June to share club news and celebrate our work.
Join us for an on-campus reception on Friday evening with hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, and music by Alan Greenleaf & The Doctor. Saturday’s events begin with complimentary breakfast followed by the business meeting at 9:00. Then you can enjoy your lunch and head for the trail on one of many outdoor outings we have.
Lodging is available on-campus at the Rita Bole Complex.
