Nashville Hiking Meetup - the social network of hikers and eco-volunteers


April 5, 2011

NHM is a Finalist in the Strobel Awards!

Nashville Hiking Meetup has been chosen as a finalist in the 25th annual Mary Catherine Strobel Volunteer Awards hosted by Hands On Nashville! The Strobel Awards recognize individuals and groups who selflessly give their time and talents to improve the community. The annual event, founded by Ford Motor Company, recognizes volunteers in six categories for their outstanding contributions to the community.

The Civic Volunteer Group Award (our category) recognizes representatives of civic, membership, congregation or noncorporate groups that volunteer together for a cause. Finalists are: Dance Marathon at Vanderbilt University, Harpeth Bike Club, and Nashville Hiking Meetup. The awards will be handed out at a luncheon on April 21.

We are so proud of this honor!
