Jack and his wife Claire moved to Bucks County thirteen years ago and were fortunate to find a home on the Canal and the River in Lumberville. It didn’t take them long to develop their interest in the Canal as they got into walking and bike riding on the towpath, and later cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Early on, Jack bought a used rowboat, which he envisioned using on the Canal, but it has mainly sat on its sawhorses over the years awaiting a nice steady flow of water in the Canal, and it’s still waiting.
Over the years Jack has walked the entire length of the Canal, and he would recommend it to everyone. All the diversity of Bucks County’s communities and scenery is played out along the Canal.
This will be Jack’s second stint on the Friends’ Board, which he joined about ten years ago, even serving as President for a few years. He has had a hiatus from the Board, but lately has been looking for a way to again become involved with the activities along the Canal, and he knows that becoming more active with the Friends is the best way to do that.
