The Waltonian - February Newsletter
I haven’t published a newsletter here since August, so thank you for your patience! I’ve set myself a goal of a newsletter at the start of each month for the rest of the year, and perhaps some special editions along the way.
Suggested February Activities
Outdoor activity - When’s the last time you explored Bear Spring Mountain? A few weeks ago I went hiking up there with my family and found some beautiful trails I’d never known about before. There are a bunch of trails suitable for for hiking/snowshoeing and others that are great for cross country skiing. For hiking I’d suggest driving a few miles past the campground at Launt Pond and picking any trail. (Bundle up and don’t forget it’s always a good idea to let someone know where you’re going, just to be safe.)
Try a new recipe - This month’s recipe is my mom’s sugar cookie recipe. It makes quite a few cookies so consider taking some to a friend or neighbor! Also, this is a fun and easy recipe to make with kids.
A good deed - I am personally matching up to $500 of cash donations to the Walton Food Pantry this month. If you’re able to, would you consider making a donation? You can donate through this form for the The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and specify the Walton Food Pantry in the ‘Adopt-a-Program’ section at the bottom of the donation form. If you give, reply to this newsletter with a receipt and I’ll match your donation. Thanks so much!
Check out this month’s activities and virtual events at the village library.

That’s all for now. As always, feel free to respond to this email with suggestions for next month’s newsletter!
