2021 Laurel Hill Day

Laurel Hill Day started out a reasonably warm, but overcast day. The precipitation forecast for the afternoon was 20%, but we were confident it would not rain on our big day. As 2:00 PM approached, attendees arrived and took their seats. The chairs had been spread wide across the grassy glen so as to be “Socially Distant” on account of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some people wore masks for additional protection. (The Delta Variant had caused a surge of infection recently.) The landscape clearing done as part of the Park Restoration Project allowed the chairs to be spread out easily. For the first time, an effective loudspeaker system had been installed for the day. All attendees could hear, no matter where they were seated.
