October 21, 1981
We had an excellent turnout of 16 on this Wednesday hike.
For many of us it would be the last hike of the year in the Santiam area.
The hikers were divided into two groups with Lee Hatch in the first
and Betty Legris leading the rest of us in the second.
The big occasion at the top was a birthday party for Suzanne Steussy.
Mike Wright had decorated a most beautiful cake.
Lee Hatch carried it to the top.
John Cecil and Betty Legris were also instrumental in providing the cake.
The view of the Cascades was excellent and the winds off the mountains
were very cold.
The leader tested his ankle operation by running most of the way down
It was a great day.
The sixteen were Norm Benton, Dick and Ernestine Bloomberg, John Cecil,
Lee Hatch, Betty Legris, Harold Leeson, Bryant Mitchell, Fred Schepman,
Sheila Soitz, Suzanne Steussy, Paula Vehrs, Carol Wayne, Mike Wright,
Eleanor Wilkinson and leader K.C. Kraft.
