HIKING MIANUS RIVER PARK, STAMFORD
THURSDAY, November 8, 2018
Mianus River Park is a 400 acre urban forest which straddles the towns of Stamford and
Greenwich and is owned jointly by them.At this time of the year the park is at its beautiful best.
While the hiking here is not difficult, the trails are strewn with leaves and roots and occasional
rocks, so you need sturdy shoes and a good sense of balance. We will hike approximately 4
miles and, starting at 10am, be done by about 12.30 pm. As usual, participation from spouses,
significant others and friends is welcome.
The hike will be followed by lunch at the Madonia Restaurant at 1297 Long Ridge Road, Stamford.
We will be meeting at 10 am at the Stamford entrance of the Mianus River Park which is near 68
Merriebrook Lane, Stamford. Do not go to the Greenwich entrance which is on Cognewagh
Road. Best directions can be had by googling 68 Merriebrook Lane, Stamford. There is a
parking lot on th right just across the street from mailbox for 68 Merriebrook.

I grew up in Los Angeles, California. I graduated from Notre Dame HS, Sherman Oaks, California in 1961 and from Georgetown University in 1969 with a degree in economics. I received a master’s degree in international management from the Thunderbird School in 1974. I was a securities trader for 34 years starting with Salomon Brothers and continuing with J.P. Morgan and Deutsche Bank. I retired from Deutsche Bank in 2009 as a managing director. My wife, Margo – an EMT with Post 53 for over 30 years – and I have been married for 45 years and have lived in Darien – in the same house – for 38 years. Additionally we have lived and worked in Charlottesville, Phoenix, New York, Cleveland and London. We have four adult children and three grandsons. I am a USA Hockey Level III ice hockey referee (before you ask,” Yes, like the wind”), an avid fisherman, a dedicated vegetable gardener and an amateur furniture maker. I went to high school with Admiral Mike Mullen, Retired Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and to college with President Bill Clinton. They may have better biographies than I, but they aren’t in the DMA !
