The Nobles Outing Club is offering the first hike of the year, the Bill Biddle Hike. In its third year, this hike honors Bill Biddle, an English teacher who started the Outing Club with some students in 1960. Many of the students of that era have fond memories of the time they spent with Mr. Biddle outdoors.

Students and faculty: We invite you to hike Mount Monadnock with us on Sunday, September 27, to honor Bill Biddle’s legacy, and to enjoy the day on a beautiful mountain. Check your email for details, and sign up!
