Ray Drewitz Memorial Fundraiser

The WMCC recently lost Ray Drewitz, 40, a beloved member of the Western Massachusetts climbing community. Friends of Ray are raising funds to dedicate a new welcome kiosk at Farley Ledges in Ray’s honor. Ray grew up in Ashfield, MA and was an avid member of our climbing community. Ray loved the outdoors, and having a memorial to him will allow us to think of our friend whenever we climb there. Thank you for your contributions in his honor.
