We are again looking for 2 or 3 pilgrims to “pack for the Camino” and bring their fully loaded packs to display exactly what they carried on “the way”. Contact Patrick for more details. If you have any gently used equipment that you want to donate for our “swap meet” please bring it to the meeting. We also need general volunteers for the meeting’s various areas.
