Lightload Towels Will Sponsor Applachian Mountain Club Annual Meeting

Lightload Towels will sponsor in part the
134th Annual Meeting of the Appalachian Mountain Club which will be held on Saturday, January 30, 2010, at the Crowne Plaza Boston North Shore (formerly the Sheraton Ferncroft Resort) in Danvers, MA.

Below is the information flyer about the event.
“This event is open to members and non-members alike. Throughout the day exciting, diverse workshops will be offered as well as an AMC Showcase Expo highlighting AMC Chapters, destinations, and volunteer opportunities.

At night, we will have the opportunity to enjoy dinner and a fantastic keynote speaker. This year’s speaker will be author, adventurer, photographer Jonathan Waterman. Jonathan’s latest book, Where Mountains are Nameless — Passion and Politics in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge relates his journeys into the Arctic Refuge.

Since 1983, Jon has taken eighteen trips into the far North and has spent over two hundred days in and around the embattled Arctic Refuge. While paddling or trekking cross-country, Jon has encountered howling wolves, British petroleum workers, Inupiat hunters and the oil-ravaged Prince William Sound.
