SINGING! FOSSIL HUNTING! HIKING! – What do these things have in common? Well, if you join us at Whitewater Memorial State Park on Friday March 27-Sunday March 29, you will be able to do all three. We will stay in two family cabins at the park, which is in Liberty, Indiana near Brookville Lake. Group singing and music-making will be a prime feature of the weekend, so all participants are encouraged to bring any portable instruments that they may play (including spoons, sticks, shakers, etc.) and some of their favorite songs to share/teach! In between music sessions, we will go out fossil-hunting along the road cuts on the way into Brookville (where we could have lunch at a restaurant or as a picnic at a scenic location) and do some easy hiking around the park. If the weather cooperates, there should be some great star gazing. Also, the lake is there for those who may want to fish.
The trip fee covers cabin lodging, firewood, 2 breakfasts (including hot coffee, teas, and cocoa) and Saturday dinner. Participants will need to pay for their own lunches in town on Saturday, their entry into the park (currently $7 or State Park pass), and will bring along their own Friday dinner (or eat before coming), a favorite snack or dessert item to share with the group during the weekend, and any cold drinks desired. Details of what personal items to bring along, when to arrive at the park, and any other info will be sent to participants a few weeks before the trip.
