It was another perfect spring morning on the patio of the Monte Vista Hotel.

A dozen Appalachian Region members enjoyed coffee, muffins, and scones in the bright sun, which made the fire pit a bit redundant. As usual, the protocol was "Arrive when you can and leave when you must." Of course, much of the conversation was about Saturday's Luft Wasser and what effect the expected rain would have on it, with the consensus being "Not much."

Our next Perks is Wednesday, June 8, from about 9 to about 10 am at the Monte Vista Hotel in Black Mountian.
