Shirley Pashall interview, 15 October 2017

Shirley Pashall recalls when the Cleveland Hiking Club was much smaller, enabling close friendships to form more readily. Aside from her hiking accomplishments, which include completing the 40-mile hike four times, backpacking numerous times, and leading hikes as well, Shirley has been in charge of the Kids Day at Camp Onwego. She first assumed this role in memory of her friend, Louise McDonough, and now 15 years later, Kids Day goes on with Shirley still at the helm.
