The Hudson Farm Charity Hike on Saturday is always a lot of fun and it is a no-cost benefit to local organizations (Hopatcong School PTOs, Fire Department, CERT, PBA Local 149 and Youth Sports Organizations). The weather is suppose to be great and the Hudson Farm trails feature some gorgeous local scenery (including the shores of Bear Pond). http://www.hudsonfarmnj.com/eventDetails.htm?6th%20Annual%20Hopatcong%20Charity%20Hike-21

BTW concerning the Hudson Farm Charity Hike on Saturday, I heard from the organizers that Cablevision will be covering the event (community access TV). - Hey Brendan: Any chance of adding the ability to edit Comments on Patch?

Brendan, According to the St. Jude's bulletin, the Hunger Walk starts at 2:20 PM. I believe the shuttle bus leaves the DPW building at 2:00 PM, not 10:00 AM.

Fixed, Terry! Thank you.
