Activities for the Forty Plus Committee

In support of the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to minimize the risks to the most vulnerable among us, AMC will immediately begin the process of temporarily closing all lodging and foodservice facilities and suspending all in-person staff and volunteer led programming through April 30.

Borderland State Park/Ames Mansion Tour

Sunday, May 3, 2020 11:15 AM to 3:45 PM

Join us for an easy 4 mile hike at Borderland State park with the added bonus of a tour of the Ames Mansion. The Ames Mansion is where the interior scenes of the movie "Knives Out" were filmed. We will meet at the Visitors Center at 259 Massapoag Avenue, North Easton at 11:15 AM and walk over to the mansion to hopefully get tickets for the 12:00 PM tour. After the tour we will start our hike which should take no more than two hours. Please come prepared to be flexible about tour/hike times as we can't anticipate how popular the tours may be.

I began leading bike trips for the AMC in 1990 and led for ten years before taking a break. When I became active with the Forty Plus Committee I decided to start leading again. I took a refresher leadership course and Wilderness First Aid and now I am certified as a cross-country ski and bike leader. I have met many wonderful leaders and trip participants and Forty Plus has become one of my most enjoyable retirement activities.
