Page Turners Book Club

Third Tuesday of the month, 7 p.m.

The Page Turners is a co-ed book group. We meet at 7:00 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month, generally rotating our meeting spots. If you are a member of the Summit Senior Center, then you are eligible to participate whether you are a full- or part-time resident of Summit County. The reading list for the year is selected by group members. Book suggestions, both fiction and nonfiction, including biography, are requested in early fall and submitted to the group for a vote. Nearly all of the voting process is conducted online, so even if you are not in Summit County, you can participate in the book selection. After winning books are chosen, group members are asked to volunteer to host a meeting or lead the meeting discussion on a book-by-book basis. Most meetings begin with wine and a brief social time, but we really do dig into the books, sharing insights and learning from one another.

In order to join this group, please contact Karen Kugler at kareninbreck@gmail.com or (970) 547-0522.

Herd of Turtles (HOTs)

Thursday mornings

The Turtles hike all year long. Our summer hikes are published in the newsletter June through September. Our hikes are easy, usually 3 to 5 miles on Thursday mornings. Winter, spring and fall we use an email list to send out hikes, directions to trailhead, time and suggested equipment (poles, snowshoes, yaktrax, spikes) depending on the weather and trail conditions. Email information is included in every newsletter. Although our hikes are easy we often have some “Snails” who are a bit slower and don’t want to walk as far. Perfect for newcomers or anyone acclimating! We want everyone to feel comfortable enjoying our beautiful mountains with us.

Cross Country Skiing Group

Moderate-level backcountry trails on Wednesdays, meeting place and start time varies week to week. A weekly email is sent out with details. The distances are usually four to six miles roundtrip. Outings are suitable for all levels of skiers that have mastered snowplow and herringbone skills. You will need backcountry skis with metal edges and fish scales, or know how to wax and/or bring skins.

After each outing, a volunteer host will provide light appetizers, hearty soups, desserts and beverages in his or her home (a $5 donation is suggested). For more information, contact Joyce Bearse at realtoribearse@yahoo.com.
