Potluck & Slideshow: Climbing Mont Blanc & Via Ferrata

Trip dates: Wednesday, March 22, 2017
6:30 PM to 9:00 PM

Join us to experience Stephen Najarian's two most recent adventures in one slideshow. The first is climbing chimneys, mountain peaks, valleys, ladders and the via-Ferrata (the Iron Way) while exploring World War I caves and trench warfare sites and the Refugi's (Huts) system. The second adventure includes the view of the Valley of Sports in Chamonix, France from the mighty summit of Mont Blanc. My wish is that this presentation will inspire you to leave a new trail on your next adventure.

Participation in the potlucks is optional, yet useful for that post-office work hunger. Homemade dishes are welcome, store bought goodies & takeout are equally welcome. Plates, bowls, cups, cutlery, napkins and drink pitchers will be supplied. The auditorium has a full kitchen if you need to do any re-warming or prep (stovetop, oven, microwave, sink & fridge). Please bring your own cooking pots if needed.

Directions:

Map & Public Transit: Take the MBTA Subway Red or Green Lines, or the # 43 or #55 bus, to Park Street Station. Walk through the Boston Common uphill towards the State House on Beacon St. To the left of the State House is Joy St; follow Joy St uphill to #4
