Peter Muench Receives WFL Service Award at State Meeting

Pete joined NYFOA in the spring of 2011, and by the fall of 2012 he had been recruited to the WFL chapter’s board of directors. For the board, he took on the role of organizing outdoor activities. In the years since he has coordinated innumerable woodswalks and several Game of Logging sessions including Level I in his woodlot. He is always brimming with ideas for more outdoor events. With all that Pete does for NYFOA, he and his wife Georgi also manage to find time to care for their 38 acres in Yates county and practice many other crafts.

A recent woodswalk was held on a beautiful day, when the forecast had been for rain. When asked how he had arranged the nice weather, Pete said that he had sacrificed a chicken and danced naked under the new moon. That is an awful image to contemplate, but it shows the depth of Pete’s commitment to NYFOA.

WFL chapter is fortunate to have Peter Muench as a member.
