2nd Place Award - PA Make America Beautiful Video Contest

Snow Shoe Rails to Trails received a check today for $100.00 for coming in second place in the PA Make America Beautiful Video Contest. Angel Tressler made the video of the work detail crews collecting trash along Casanova Road, Casanova Spur, Coaldale Road, Loch Lomond Road, One Mile Road. Over 800 pounds of trash was collected and taken to the Rush Township Facility to load into their dump truck. We want to thank the Rush Township Supervisors and staff for their help to coordinate this work detail. Centre County Recycling & Refuse (Rod Fye) provided vest, gloves, trash bags for this event. Thank you also to our Centre County Probation Office for supplying some help along with a large number of volunteers from the SSRTA.
Thank you all!!

2019 Chicken BBQ

The weather was hot but that did not stop the atvist from coming out and supporing the 17th Annual Best Line Powersports/SSRTA Chicken BBQ. We started serving around 11:30 and by 2:15pm over 400 halves of chicken was gone. Alot of prep work goes into an event this size and it started with Cameron Fye, Andy Basalla & Patrick Warefield, Applying dust control, painting parking lot and setting baracades and cones. Then, at 1:30am Chris Vangor, family and friends do there magic starting to do the chicken. Many, many great comments on what a great job they did-chicken was excellent. Hall's Market did a fantastic job providing macaroni & potato salad, bake beans to Beer One providing the soda & water. Such great corporate sponsors. Carole & Charles Jensen prepped prior to the event. They helped clean coolers, picnic tables, concrete floors and gave some direction too. Ron & Sheila Fye took care of the parking and a great job as usual. So many volunteers handled the food line including applications, clothing, raffles, meals. -- thank you all!! Mr. & Mrs. Haag provided a snow cone unit and was that a hit on this hot day!! Mark Watson did a fantastic job helping to coordinate the cleanup afterwards. A big thank you to the Centre County Probation Office and to Dave Walker and Marty Wagner for attending the Best Line Display and Fred Yearkick for delivering them. We could not have a trail system without your support so thank you all that attended & supported everything at the event. 50/50 winner was Steve Bechwith from Port Matilda.

Respect Trail Neighbors

Andy Basalla, Gary Halsnik & Larry Mayes installed eleven various signs between Clarence Gate & Number 10 Bridge today, July 8, 2019. We are hoping the signs help keep the speed & noise levels  down. In this one mile area, we have stated that this is a Slow Down, Noise Free Zone. So, all radios are to be turned down while going through this area where the houses are close to the trail.-no matter what time day or night. Also, no breaks along trail are allowed in this area either. Please be sensitive to the trail neighbors.
Snow Shoe Township Supervisor Rodney Preslovich stopped by to evaluate sign installations & wording. He appreciated the efforts of the trail to work with the trail neighbors to help cut down or eliminate complaints.
We had a few vistiors from Delaware along the trail today while installing signs. They were having a blast. Thank you all for your cooperation.
