Traverse Hiking Club
Sadly, we have lost our friend, and leader for the past couple of years, John Briggs, who died in his sleep Friday, Feb. 7. We will miss John’s enthusiasm and smiles. He loved the woods, and loved the people. Our hearts and love go out to Nancy and their families.
GTHC is planning a bench with a plaque in his memory at a favorite place on the trail.
Nancy Briggs would like to have donations made to the GTHC, which must be made payable to the NCTA.
Note payment the following ways:
