Remembering Lee Fleishman

Lee Fleishman was a regular on the Seniors rides and he and his wife, Ruth, were active cyclists and regular volunteers at various BBC events.  Lee also served as a volunteer ranger on the Northern Central Trail, as seen in the photo.  This photo was taken at the dedication of the drinking fountain, etc., at the Paper Mill Road entrance to the trail Sept. 16, 2005.  The BBC was a major contributor to the cost of the well and drinking fountain.  In the photo Lee Fleishman is flanked by Frank Anders on the left and Russell Loy on the right.
