Paul Leikin Extra Mile Award: Recognizes those volunteers who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to projects such as a book, map or advocacy. This year we presented the award to:
Bob Haas, of Wappingers Falls, NY.
Bob was a key member of the team that designed, planned, and built the Appalachian Trail Great Swamp Boardwalk in Pawling, NY, that opened this past summer. Over the course of the 2 1/2-year project, Bob made more than 50 trips to the site and put in more than 350 hours of work.
