The classes of 1977-1979 are planning a reunion the weekend of the Steak Roast. More to come on this. Dina Kennedy passed this along... "I have a friend who is doing the New York State Big Year birding run. He is traveling all over the state to see rare birds, and birds rare for him but year round at certain locations (such as in the ADKs). He'll go anywhere! If there are any experienced birders in Newcomb or nearby who would like to help Scott find birds for his count up here, please let me know at 518-582-2275 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. He'll be up here to look for grouse, boreal chickadee, gray jay, grosbeaks, and certain owls this week, and will definitely be coming up here again this year more than once. Thanks!"
