OBSIDIAN SILVER ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Congratulations to the Obsidian organization on its Silver Anniversary. It is something we can all be proud of --- "Obsidianing" part or all of the 25 years has been a bright spot in the lives of each of us. To me, the Obsidians represent a different kind of organization than I have ever known - - truly an organization that exists by "doing" -- participants rather than spectators --a feeling of close unity and comradeship not experienced in other groups -- an organization where leadership is exercised more through committee action, trips and climbs leadership than from the "elective" offices. The more we participate in trips and climbs, the more richly we feel rewarded for our efforts.

Throughout the past 25 years, it is reasonable to assume that each member who has taken some part - great or small - in Obsidian activity has felt that he or she is a better person for having had the experience.

We will gather on April 18 to pay honor to the Obsidian founders, the past presidents, and the membership in general who have contributed to our success the past 25 years.
