Farewell to Harriet Arkley – Walk in Hundred Acre Woods and Lunch at Fairhaven Pavilion

Walking Friends at Hoag’s Pond July 12, 2019

No one really wanted to think about Harriet moving south, so it was just another wonderful walk in the woods, followed by lunch.  Everyone brought a delicious dish to share, so we had an amazing array of salads and a table full of yummy desserts.  Todd Ellsworth stopped in and presented Harriet with a replica of the Walking Friends stone that will be a part of the “Recognition Bench” alongside one of the trails.  Carola Anderson presented Harriet a photo book with a compilation of pictures from all the hiking retreats and various walks over the years.  It was a wonderful celebration!
