Where Are the Outings?

We know that you are frustrated that there are no Dallas Sierra Club outings. We are too!. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, all Sierra Club outings have been canceled through July 4. We are hopefull that we will be able to offer outings in the Fall, but it all depends on how the pandemic progresses. So, remember to wear your mask and social distance and get vaccinated as soon as your turn comes up. We WILL have organized outings again!

Limerick of the Month

Chiropractor it seems has a knack
To relieve me when spine's out of whack.
     I know that the guy
     Is who I'll rely
On. He always, it seems, has my back.
