A group of 14 brave souls gathered early at the Laurel Mountain Park shelter house in weather so cold they tried to get into the shelter house while waiting for the walk to start. However, the door to the big room was unlockable, although efforts were made to open it: IMG_4325E

The walkers were participating in a Santa Hat Event, which began with an almost-one-mile walk along the Borough roads.  Alice Grasso led the walkers who, in spite of the weather, strolled casually along Locust, Beechwood, Walnut, Maple, White Oak, Laurel and Hemlock roads.

Can you guess the identity of this woman waiting to start walking?

The walk ended up at the Holland residence, where the program for the day was scheduled because of the need for a Wi-Fi service (not available at the shelter house) that was to connect us to the Santa Hat Challenge in Brocton, Massachusetts. The trial connection at mid-morning worked:

Everyone crowded into the Holland’s living room where Carolyn delivered a welcome message followed by Santa songs led by resident Joanne and Santa readings by former resident Ann Woodall, Beanery Writers Group member Anna Beck, and Carolyn.

…but the connection to Brocton couldn’t be completed because the cold temperature and wind chill factor in Brocton disabled their laptop, so the Skype connection couldn’t be completed.

The event ended with a group photo:
