Because of her typical modesty, Laurie said nothing in her farewell post about her involvement with the A.T. Museum. When our founder and President, Larry Luxenberg, first proposed a Museum to honor and showcase America's most popular and heavily used long distance hiking trail, Laurie was among the first to sign on and agree to help. She has represented ATC on our Board since the early days.
Although Laurie is leaving her job at the ATC, she is certainly not leaving the trail. She and her husband Dick will be hiking the trail. They'll also continue to maintain their Trail section for the Potomac A.T. Club. She's also promised to remain active with the Museum as well. Frankly, we weren't about to let her go.
On behalf of everyone involved with the Museum project, we wish Laurie and Dick the very best on her retirement. We are sure we will see them on the Trail and at the Museum soon.
