We are privileged to have author Winton Porter, “Guru of the Appalachian Trail,” for our guest speaker at the last meeting of 2011. Winton is a lifelong outdoorsman and natural-born storyteller.

Since 2001, he has owned Mountain Crossings store, a hiker’s mecca deep in the Georgia woods near the southern end of the Appalachian Trail. Winton won the “Georgia Author Of The Year 2010” Award. His memory for dialogue, eye for detail, compassion for those in trouble, and gift for humor come together in the 27 chapters that make up his first book, Just Passin’ Thru.

A reception will follow the meeting. Please bring a plate of your favorite finger-food to share. Come and bring a friend!

The Community House is at the corner of N. Park St. and Hawkins St. - map
