The 2016 ALDHA Care Program began today with trail work with Tennessee Eastman Hiking Club, and the presentation of the year's first ALDHA Care package to Bob Peoples and Kincora Hostel.
The Annual ALDHA Gathering at Shippensburg University was very successful for the ALDHA Care Program. The information table was well received, and the ALDHA Care workshop went well. A significant highlight was being able to present an ALDHA Care Package to the newest Hostel on the AT. Alison Coltrane has opened the Open Arms Hostel in Luray, VA, and is now open to serve AT hikers.
