new walk coordinator for 2009

Well, this is old news now, but just because I wasn't blogging, doesn't mean that things weren't happening!

Sam Friedlander has stepped up and taken over the job of walk coordinator for 2009. Sam has been involved with the walk planning for several years and over the last few years has done an admirable job with organizing all of the food. This is quite a task as we receive food donations from a large number of different organizations - some of it needs to stay hot, some needs to stay cold and by it's nature the large majority of it needs to be handled at the last minute. In the three years that our family has done the walk, we've always been well fed. And since we're usually the last ones back, if there was a problem with the amount of food, we'd be the ones to know!

The next walk planning meeting is scheduled for next week. Here's the announcement.

A planning meeting for the 2009 Hudson Valley Walk for PKD will be held on May 6, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. We need your help! Please join us at the meeting to learn about volunteer opportunities for the Walk and to share your ideas. You are welcome to attend the planning meeting even if you are unable to volunteer for the Walk. Here are the details about the meeting:
