I have a meeting this evening (I am a lister for Duxbury).  With respect to
walks on Ward Hill, you asked for a couple of dates ( I think you hoped I'd
lead two walks) so I would suggest two Saturdays, August 28 and September 4
(the latter date is part of the Labor Day weekend which might be a good idea
but also might be a bad idea). I pulled these dates out of the hat, so to
speak, so I'm open to other possibilities.  However, I would suggest late
August and early September as a good time frame.

Good luck with your meeting,
Frde Pratt
