April 26: Earth Day Cleanup
Three families from Chapter 33 participated in a cleanup project at the Confluence yesterday for Earth Day. It was a smaller group than some of our more recent outings, but we had fun, and we’re hoping for a larger turnout for our camping outings this summer.

We hope to have pictures up soon.

May 16-18: Biking and Camping
May will bring our first camping outing of the year. We have made reservations for a groups of camp sites at Klondike Park in St. Charles County, along the Katy Trail. Our plan is that most of the Chapter will be focused on the Klondike park area for camping, hiking, biking, and fishing, but the Senior Navigators will have a more involved outing: starting at a camp site 15 miles away Friday night and then biking together on the Katy trail to the combined location for Saturday night.

There will be other fun options, like visiting the Daniel Boone home and visiting the nearby wine country.

We also plan to have the May General Meeting before the outing be focus on bike safety and maintenance in preparation.

Please see the attached flyer for details and email Ellen Wilson to sign up.

June 27-29: Camping
We will camp again in June, this time at Little Grassy Lake Campground & Marina in Southern Illinois. You may recognize that name because we had planned to camp there in September 2013, but those plans fell through. We will be joined by Navigators Chapter 46 from the Indianapolis area. Jim Jordan has made reservations for us.

July 18-20: Camping Float Trip
We have tentative plans to camp in July at Meramec State Park (the location of our first camping outing in 2012) or another Missouri State Park. We plan to have Sunday focused on a float trip on the Meramec River. Tom Draney and Andy Ford will plan this outing.
