Madison - 125
The 125th Anniversary of Madison Spring Hut will be celebrated at the Hut on Sunday, August 18, 2013, starting around noon. Both daytrippers and overnighters are welcome, including guests. The OH Association has reserved the entire Hut for Sunday night at the AMC member rate ($100 plus tax), with those who qualify (by virtue of being dues-paying members of both the AMC and the OH Association) entitled to the OH Rate ($85 plus tax). There are also child rates (ages 3-12) and youth rates (ages 13-17).
To obtain these rates, call the AMC Reservations Department (603-466-2727) and ask for Group Reservation No. 207440.
This should sell out, so don't delay making your reservation. If there are any spaces left as of July 19, they will be made available to the public.
The Committee planning the event is still in formation and includes so far: Willy Ashbrook (Chair), Bob Cary, Gerry Whiting, Tim Traver, Jack Tracy, Bill Blais, Mark Dindorf, Peter & Emily Bensen, Sparky Koop, Liz Mygatt, Nathaniel Blauss, Beth Weick, Bennie Taylor, Hilary Gerardi, George Heinrichs, and ex officio James Wrigley. Those interested in being on The Committee, please contact Bill Barrett (email@example.com).

April 1, 2012: Announcing a new feature in our online croo database. You can now contribute a couple of sentences that will display on your biography page. The post can have one of 2 labels. The first choice is "Where are they now" and the second is "Current job".
Some examples of "Where are they now" would be "Retired in sunny California" and "Raising 3 kids in the north country".
The "Current job" label is for those of you who would like to participate in a LinkedIn-like system for members who wish to join with OH looking to career network. Examples would be "I work in nursing in New Hampshire" or "Looking for a ski job in Colorado this winter".
To get started, click here and tell us what you want to contribute. There is also a link to our LinkedIn group.

: SPRING REUNION ANNOUNCEMENT
Based on the number of reservations received to date, this year's May 18th
event promises to be a smaller, more intimate affair, complete with a change of menu. As in the past, lunch will consist of sandwiches, salad, and picnic items. Dinner however will be burgers and fixin's rather than the lobster/clam extravaganza, reflecting the smaller, more informal nature of the gathering. Meals are $10 each, pay as you go at the door, liquid refreshments included. (After all, it's an OH reunion...)
Activities will include whatever the assembled want to get into-softball, cribbage, tale telling, and some minor cabin chores. For those who want to stretch their legs, a sweep of the Old Hutman and Hall's Ledge trails will be undertaken to ensure safe passage for the coming months. Come one, come all!

: The new and improved OHA obituaries site
is now running. With 70 obituaries in the past 16 years, the old single page was too difficult to edit, too slow to load and too hard to navigate.
Best of all, the new site can accept remembrances from OHA friends.

: The pictures from the FallFest-2011 last fall are ready. Check them out here.

: To All Who Are Attending OH Fallfest on November 12. If you have your copy of the August 1961 issue of the National Geographic handy, please be sure to bring it to the Fallfest. We will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of that issue, and recognizing a number of OH who are featured in the Justice Douglas article on "The Friendly Huts of the White Mountains."
You'll need your copy to compare today's Gerry Whiting to his photo, or to see if the lederhosen that Chuck Kellogg might be sporting are indeed the same ones which he is shown wearing in the Lakes kitchen. We plan to get a group photo of everyone who brings their copy of that issue, and if you are fortunate, you may substantially increase its value by getting autographs on the appropriate pages.
See you there with your Geographic!
