April NCUU Hike: Wednesday, April 21.
We will meet at the fellowship building at 9 a.m. and will caravan to the trails.
We will check out two trails in the Goethe State Forest. The first trail, much of which is on a boardwalk, is less than half a mile out and back and goes to the Goethe Giant, one of the largest cypress trees in Florida. This marvelous tree is over 900 years old and more than 105 feet tall. For those who would like more miles, we’ll go on to the trail at Buck Island Pond, a 1.8-mile trail. The second trail has a short section that can be muddy if it has just rained, and a short part of it is also a horse trail. There is a $2 parking fee at the second trail, and no bathrooms at either trail.
Come hike with us!
It’s About Time
The Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution has been pending 100 years and is 200 years overdue. It was finally ratified by the required number of states. Last year, it passed the House of Representatives but was not brought before the Senate. This year, the House changed the deadline for ratification, and it will be brought to the Senate.
Please urge Senators Scott and Rubio to actively support it, even though Florida has never ratified it. Contact Rick Scott at (202) 224-5274; Marco Rubio at (202) 224-3041. We know that much has been asked of you recently. This is the culmination of so much work for equality and democracy.
Or Google their names and a contact form comes up for you to easily fill out and submit your request. Please get your friends and relatives to take part in this effort for our grandchildren.
