    We will meet at Beaver Lake for the pancake breakfast at 10am. (Depending on the appetite, breakfast costs will range from $3-$5 for a meal featuring pancakes, sausage, juice and a hot beverage.) Maple goodies such as maple cream, maple candy, sapsuckers and syrup will be available to purchase from the Friends of Beaver Lake.

    We will then hike to the trail where the Beaver Lake staff has prepared extensive programming centered around the year’s “first harvest of maple syrup.” This includes a demonstration sugarbush with six different stations to introduce visitors to the heritage of maple sugaring as well as an opportunity to sample the fruits of photosynthesis.

    If there is enough snow, you may rent snowshoes and snowshoe the other trails as well. Snowshoes are not needed for our walk through the maple syrup demonstration. Since this is an outdoor event, please dress appropriately. Gloves and hats are important and snow boots or hiking shoes are recommended. There will probably still be snow on the ground and the demonstrations are in the snow. Snowshoes fit over your footwear.

    Beaver Lake Nature Center is located at 8477 East Mud Lake Rd., Baldwinsville, NY. Click on the link for more information or directions.

    Judy O’Rourke retired as Director of Center for Fellowship and Scholarship Advising at Syracuse University. Judy is the recording secretary of the CNY Alumni Club and a board member of the Victims of Pan Am Flight 103. She earned her BS (1975) and Master in Public Administration (2010) degrees from SU. In February 2014, Judy was invested as an Office in the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for her work with the Syracuse-Lockerbie Scholars program. Judy loves quilting and leads SU’s Hendricks Chapel Quilters, where she teaches students to make quilts which are donated to local children’s charities. 

    In December 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was targeted by a terrorist’s bomb killing 270 people, including 35 Syracuse students and 11 residents of Lockerbie Scotland. Over the past 27 years, Syracuse has developed a strong relationship with the families of the Pan Am victims and the people of Lockerbie. Beyond simply remembering our colleagues, the students at Syracuse – through the Remembrance and Lockerbie Scholarships – have used this terrible tragedy as a springboard for improving the lives of others and the world they live in through service and through their careers.
