The Clar-Willis award is bestowed annually by the Finger Lakes Trail Conference on a distinguished trail volunteer or couple. At the fall meeting of the Adirondack Mountain Club this past weekend, Bill and Anne Brosseau, of Manlius (near Syracuse, New York) received the honor.

John Bowen, chairman of the Adirondack Mountain Club - Onondaga Chapter, presented the award. The Brosseaus have made a significant contribution over a period of time as trail workers.

The Clar-Willis award was named after Henry Clar and Edward Willis, early Finger Lakes trail volunteers. They exhibited outstanding dedication and long time service in building and maintaining many miles of the Finger Lakes Trail system. The Finger Lakes Trail and North Country Trail are concurrent for approximately 300 miles through central and western New York.
