Good day out there, South Nelson.  

Thank to you our staff for organizing and leading all of the end-of-year adventures & celebrations!  I thankfully got to have a sweat and great view down on the city below (and a brief cribbage match) with the characters in this week's photo this past Wednesday.  So fun!
