Annual Meeting

Thank you to all who attended Sunday’s TRA Annual Meeting! It was short but very productive. As a follow-up to some of the discussion, please note that there are two workshops coming up for the Greater Santa Fe Trails Planning group. The first is on Dec. 10 from 5:30 – 8:00 at the Santa Fe Community College in Jemez Rooms 1,2,and 3. The second will be some time in January. Please see the GSFRP Trails Community Workshops Flyer (Dec’18).

Also, we collected 20 — yes, 20! — bags of groceries for The Food Depot which CB Bowlds was kind enough to deliver on Monday. Thank you for your generosity to those who are not as fortunate as we.

We will follow up on many of the comments and suggestions made during the meeting and Art Jensen will get back to you as needed.

Also, a huge thank you to Helen and Wayne Swinson for hosting the after-the-Annual-Meeting party in their home and to Robin Owen for organizing.

Happy holidays to all!
