Trekker Song: (To the tune of The Flintstones)
Trekkers join the Trekkers.
We're a Volkssport walking club.
From the town of Belleville,
We're a club right out of AVA.
We walk usually on trails and streets.
Through the courtesy of our own two feet.
When you join the Trekkers
you'll make some good friends
some very good friends
You'll have a way good time!
