Bellville Volksmarch Event

We would like to thank the couple that acted as trail masters for this event; they are Robert and Betsy Stutes. He is pastor of the host church. She got folks started off on the right path leaving the church parking lot and he cruised the route before he stopped to work the checkpoint number two. They did the maps and directions and he marked the routes.
