Activity Coordinators Needed
Brian Carlson, our Snowshoe Coordinator, has finished his term. Brian’s work getting snowshoe trips organized and posted in the Trail Blazer is very much appreciated! We will miss him. If you love snowshoeing and would like to help keep this club program going, please contact me. We continue to need a club Weekend Hike Coordinator and a Backpack Coordinator to promote these programs too. Please let me know if you can help.
For more information contact Carolyn Jenkins, Trips Chair, 503-422-6456 or email@example.com
TCO Club Brochures
Trails Club of Oregon is growing and membership is increasing. We appreciate club members reaching out to acquaintances, family and friends and telling them
about our wonderful club. Brochures are available at the lodges and at club events for handing out to our guests. But, I would also be happy to mail some to you
to give to your friends and neighbors.
Other than by word of mouth, we have found that people find us via the internet or from our brochures located at such places as REI, public libraries and other similar places. Your help would be appreciated in distribution of these brochures. Please let me know if you are willing to drop off brochures at some locations near your work or home. I will even mail you the brochures. Callista Snively, Membership Trustee, Email firstname.lastname@example.org or Cell 503 330-7344. Thank you for your help.
