Mark your calendars on Saturday, August 13, for our annual SMHC Election Picnic taking place again at Dr. Solomon's special gardens, GATOP, gardenconservacy.org. The address for the gardens is 2541 Riverside Dr., Knoxville. Watch for balloons hanging at the entrance to parking, and then visit the tent to get a map to the gardens. Please bring a bagged lunch and a chair. We will provide drinks and dessert. Arrive early to explore the gardens between 11am and noon, then settle in for a special lunch treat with The Missing Goats Band playing Blue Grass, Irish, Scottish, and Appalachian music. Dana Soehn with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park Service will give a brief talk after lunch, then President Ken Wise will conduct Club business, including electing our slate of officers for 2023. Be sure to check out the table with SMHC merchandise as well as the list of future hikes that need leaders for 2023. This is your chance to see our schedule for hikes for next year and sign up to be a leader or co-leader as well as enjoy a delightful program!
