It has come to our attention that there is some confusion regarding appropriate footwear for the pioneer trek. To clarify, would you please pass the following information on to the families of those who will be participating in the trek.
Appropriate footwear for the pioneer trek includes hiking books or athletic/tennis shoes. Shoes may have mesh. It is not advisable to purchase new shoes for the trek unless adequate time has been spent to break them in. Shoes that fit well, are comfortable, and provide good support will be sufficient. In addition, those youth (priests and laurels) and adults who will be members of the vanguard company will need a pair of shoes suitable for water. No other trek participants are required to bring water shoes. With any further questions you are welcome to contact Sis. Darlene Rounsville, 771-1467.
