The Second Annual


In 2013, a group of longtime GMHA members conceived, planned and hosted a gathering to bring together longtime supporters and members past and present. This reunion was an outstanding success! Over 60 people attended, and thoroughly enjoyed rekindling old friendships, making new acquaintances, and reminiscing about the ‘good old days’. Stories were shared over platters of cheese and wine. The room rang with laughter creating an informal and welcoming atmosphere.

This year, the reunion is planned to coincide with the final day of the historical 100-mile ride. Those who would like to come early and celebrate the success of these modern-day heroes during the 100-mile mounted awards are welcome to gather on the deck by 2:30pm.

Are you an older GMHA member who would like to reconnect?

Maybe you are a current member who would like to hear stories from the past?

Or do you know any older folk who were once active at GMHA?

Immediately following the 100-mile presentations, please join us to enjoy the reunion in the GMHA Youth Center from 4pm – 6pm on Sunday August 31st. Watch the oral histories recorded last year by GMHA members, enjoy a golf cart ride around the site, or just enjoy light refreshments while socializing with old friends.

And if you have items, such as old photos or newspaper cuttings please bring them along to share – GMHA is built on your memories! Call/email to confirm you will join us!
