NOLS Alumni Gather at the Delancey

About a dozen NOLS Alumni in the New York City area and their friends gathered in the beauty outdoor rooftop garden of The Delancey Monday evening, July 13, 2009. With people coming and going throughout the evening it was a little difficult keeping track of how many of us were there at any one time. Most enjoyed the $5 rooftop hamburger and hot dog barbecue as well as various brews. Chris was congratulated on his engagement and upcoming wedding. Tobey shared some amazing stories from his week volunteering on the Clearwater, including calling on his emergency medical training to provide first aid to a crew member experiencing anaphylactic shock after being exposed to onions, to which she is highly allergic. Elizabeth is still looking for employment in the field of higher education. Lori is anticipating a new roommate moving in. Gint is looking for an apartment of his own. We also heard about he bachelor beaver which has apparently set up housekeeping on the Bronx River.

As always, Tobey, Lori and Gint demonstrated their group leadership skills by arranging for the evening, including reserving tables and making sure we all got the word.

The next gathering may be planned for the Boat Basin Café, an outdoor venue which was rained out last month.

On August 22 we are planning to float the Bronx River on a private trip with the Bronx River Alliance.
