February Program Feedback by Lois Kelly

Pete Hornbeck, Canoe Maker Extraordinaire, discusses the construction details of this awesome canoe!

Our canoe-builder extraordinaire from the Adirondacks, Peter Hornbeck, once again brought a full house to our General Meeting.  He also brought 2 canoes.  The audience response is always enthusiastic, the questions thoughtful and varied, and Peter as likeable and gracious as ever.  More than a few ADK  members even boast ownership of a Hornbek canoe.
Peter overwhelmed our ADK audience when he donated one of his canoes to our club for a fundraiser raffle!  Watch for marketing news regarding this raffle in the next Newsletter.
Peter has also been selected as a Commissioner for the Adirondack Parks Association, but politics has held up his appointment for not quite a year.  I urge you to go to our Website, pull up the letter regarding Peter’s appointment, and either e-mail or snail mail it to Senator Antoine Thompson, the Senator from WNY who serves on the Environmental Committee. Please do it now.  Don’t procrastinate. Thank You.
