SSRTA 2018 Raffle

Mike Hanna Jr. participated by drawing all the raffle winners. He was very busy pulling out the quilt raffle winner, then to many door prizes provided by Best Line Powersports and the SSRTA. Thank you Tylor Tressler for providing a few extra items for the door prizes. Then, Mike was back between the ATV raffle drawing and the door prizes-helping to move the event along as quickly as possible. Thank you so much for helping with the drawing. It was nice to see Mike Getz at the event and he bought two tickets and said if they were selected, the prize could go to the SSRT and we could hold an auction - that included the razor. His name wasn't selected but we appreciated his positive thought's for the club. The upstairs was full of many items to eat, Pigs in a Blanket made by Ruth Martin, Red Skin butter parsley potatoes, sloppy joes, hot dogs, pulled pork, chili made by the Master, Jim Verost, bake beans, cookies and much much more. A great meal. Thank you Chris Corman for helping to set up the electric ovens and keep a close watch on them. We hear you about the seating and space available and we know that space was limited for the raffle and we will work with Best Line to have more space available and more seating available for next year. Sorry for the inconvience. Thank you all for coming and hope to see the large crowd back in 2019.

Day of Caring

Bald Eagle Area Students participated in the 25th Year of the Centre County United Way Day of Caring. Seventh grade students were delivered by Cramer Busing from Bald Eagle Area High School to the Snow Shoe Rails to Trails Gillentown Trailhead. They were supervised by their seventh grade teacher, Mrs McCarty. Gary Halsnik and Larry Mayes provided material and some instructions too from the SSRTA.

These volunteers provide community service within the Bald Eagle Area School District and selected Snow Shoe Rails to Trails. They stained the railroad ties at the entrance to the trailhead  and also painted several hundred feet of the perimeter fencing surrounding the parking lot. They started to paint the perimeter fence where last years group left off. Great job done by all and Snow Shoe Rails to Trails want to thank Mrs. McCarty and all the volunteers for the great job they did and the fun in doing it.
