Day Of Caring On The Snow Shoe Rails to Trails

Marilee Close scheduled the Bald Eagle Area 8th grade students for a Day of Caring on the Snow Shoe Rails to Trails, October 5, 2017.
The Bald Eagle Area students that volunteered for this project and their teachers - Marci McGonigal and Mandy Woodring were delivered by Jim Cramer bussing. Gary Halsnik and Larry Mayes met everyone and explained the work needing done.

We were divided into two crews, one painting the perimeter fencing surrounding the Gillentown Trailhead. The other crew painted tire rim post used for parking at events.

The students painted a lot more than the trail expected. They got all the rim post painted and about 1/2 of the entire perimeter fence. After the work was completed, they ate their lunch and all did a walk down the trail to the Route 144 tunnel. What a great project for the students to take on and help out the SSRTA for a couple hours. Mrs. McGonigal and Mrs. Woodring did a great job directing their kids and the project. The SSRTA wants to thank everyone involved in "Day of Caring" on the Snow Shoe Rails to Trails.
