NORWAY – The Healthy Outdoor Group (HOGs) weekly hikes continue in May.
The HOGs, part of The Table community group, is dedicated to enjoying the beautiful outdoors and sharing it with other – people of all abilities are welcome to join the hikes, as well as kayak paddles, which begin in June. In 2021 the HOGs went on 25 hikes and paddled 19 different bodies of water in the area.
Upcoming hikes are:
Sunday, May 22, 12:30 p.m., Noyes Mountain, Greenwood. Meet at the trailhead at 172 Richardson Hollow Road, Greenwood. The hike on Western Mountain Foothills Land Trust trails is 2.3 miles and rated moderate.
Sunday, May 29, 12:30 p.m. Overset Mountain Trail, Greenwood. Meet at Alexander’s Camp at 12:30 p.m. The 4.2 mile trail is rated moderate. There will be a pot luck cookout after the hike.
HOG’s are accepting donations of kayaks or monitory donations towards the purchase of kayaks.
Aside from HOGs, The Table continues to be busy, offering free clothing giveaways from 1 to 5 p.m. the first two weeks of the month, on Tuesday and Wednesday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the last Saturday of the month at 160 Main St. The organization is looking for gently used children’s clothing, as well as monetary donations to buy new socks and underwear for adults, as well as a free, larger space for the clothing program.
Free weekly Saturday breakfasts at the Norway Grange, 115 Whitman St., have returned. The 9 a.m. breakfasts are sit-down, and also offer a takeout option. Teams and groups who would like to give back to the community by serving breakfast are always welcome. The in-person breakfast have been a great way to combat food insecurity as well as fulfilling a social need for many in the area.
