Every year the Hoosier Hikers Council hosts a membership meeting in March.  Everybody is welcome!

The HHC will have our 18th Annual Meeting on Saturday, March 23, 2013.  The meeting will be held at Lutheran Hills Church Camp in Brown County (see directions below).  Come and meet new friends or catch up with old friends!
