What a Day!

What a day we had for Branford’s third annual “Get the Children Outside” walk! Saturday, December 27, 2014 dawned to be sunny and unusually warm for a winter’s day. As you can see from the slideshow,  about 80 children of all ages showed up and enjoyed this walk! We were especially glad to see so many children, since the Shoreline Greenway Trail is unique in providing families with safe off road hiking and bicycling.

REMEMBERING ONE OF OUR ORIGINAL MEMBERS

Art Johnson
The Branford SGT team is saddened by the loss of founding member and dear friend, Art Johnson.  Art was a regular at our monthly meetings, and we miss his colorful language and humorous anecdotes about his youth in Branford.  He frequently joined us on our First Saturday walks as well as on the Friday morning walks with the Branford Walkers.  Art would be trudging along at his own pace and often surprised the group by coming to the end of the walk ahead of us by following his own path.
