Katrina Crie-Windred Memorial Ride/Walk

On Sept. 5 there will be a memorial ride/walk for Katrina Crie-Windred's memory; she lost her life in November 2010. This is a benefit for her 11-year-old son Osage who has spent several weeks in Maine Medical Center and most recently in Pen Bay Medical Center. Osage was born with a defective lymphatic disorder. Osage attends the Friendship Village School.

Katrina grew up in Midcoast Maine. She was a noted international and national equine professional. Her later years were devoted to helping people and animals.

The event will take place at Camden Hills State Park, two miles north of Camden on Route 1. It will start at 10 a.m. with blessing of the horses, riders and walkers by the Rev. Mark Glovin of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Rockland. Dr. Don Tobey and Mary Collins of Lake Elmore, Vt., will be playing some of Katrina's favorite music. Participants are encouraged to bring a bagged lunch and bottled water.

The multi-use trail is open to horses and is a five-mile gravel-based road with the trail head at the Youngtown Road entrance. This is a lovely trail with glimpses of Penobscot Bay, heavily wooded and peaceful. There is a section of steep slope on this up-and-down trail. Many walking trails branch off this main trail.

The park entry fee is $3 to be paid at the entrance. The suggested event donation is $17 with checks made out to The Katrina Windred Trust for Osage Crie. Donations may be sent directly to Kristin Macomber, 50 Kirkland St., Cambridge, MA 02138-2014. For event entry form or more information contact Vicki Harriman at or call 785-4761 or Pam Vose at or call 785-6302.
