John is presently an active member of the Elmira Kiwanis Club and appreciates the fun, camaraderie and opportunity to make a difference that this service club provides.

He and his wife enjoy silviculture, long distance hiking, canoeing and travel in general, especially when it involves the grandchildren or Scotland.
