Update July 17, 2019: Due to the extreme heat and humidity levels predicted for this Saturday, we have decided to postpone the Middle Mixer: Summer Hike in Beacon until a later date this fall. Thank you for your interest in this event and for your understanding given these extra high temperatures. Please note: we still have several Middle Mixers planned for this summer that allow all-ages to connect outdoors: Family Picnic in Tompkins Square Park on Tuesday, June 30th; Beach Day at the Rockaways on Sunday, August 18th; and a Major League Soccer Game on Saturday, September 7th. See the full listing of our summer events: https://www.middlechurch.org/news/summer-fun-middle-church
Celebrate summer with an inter-generational group of Middle folks hiking together in Beacon, NY. This hike is open to all ages and abilities and is a wonderful way to connect with a variety of people from Middle while enjoying nature together. Young adults Athena and Toni will lead our group hike and then host a meal at their home in Beacon before we head back to Manhattan.
Ticket Options (for age 12 and older)*:
Metro-North Roundtrip Ticket + Group Lunch ($30):
Meeting Location for Metro-North Ticket Participants: Meet at Grand Central Station (at the center clock at 9:25am sharp) Cost: $30 registration on Eventbrite (covers round-trip transportation on the Metro North + snacks and lunch)
Coming by Personal Vehicle to Beacon + Group Lunch ($10):
Meeting Location for Personal Vehicle Participants: Meet at Beacon Train Station at 11:15am
Cost: $10 registration (covers snacks and group lunch)
*Children under the age of 5 can ride the Metro-North at no cost, and children between the ages of 5-11 can ride for $1 each way (paid on-board train), so the only tickets that would need to be reserved for your family through Eventbrite would be for adults and those 12 and older. If you plan to bring children, send Marte an email so that we can still count your young people in our group total for food and logistics purposes.
For any questions, email Marte at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, July 17.
