No Steelers’ game this day, so you have no excuse not to attend!
This year’s MTC annual dinner meeting is far more than a 2019 wrap-up. We commemorate the Montour Trail Council’s 30th anniversary on Sunday, November 17, at St. Joan of Arc Church in Library, PA starting at 5:00 p.m.
This milestone occasion honors and celebrates the MTC’s founding Board of Directors. Stan Sattinger, a co-founder of the MTC and our first president, plans to give an entertaining keynote address, “Beginnings of the Montour Trail: the Who, the How, the…” The Trail’s founders developed a clear vision for the beneficial use for the abandoned Montour Railroad. Stan’s stories answer questions of how the Trail came into being: How would the vision be spread? Who would acquire the property? How would the Trail be built? Who would fund it? Once built, would it be worth all the effort that went into engineering it? Would anyone bother to use it? Stan hopes to share some memories with you!
And you are welcome to share your memories with us!
Founding Board member Tim Killmeyer debuts his video “The Montour Trail Then and Now.” Tim’s presentation illustrates what the abandoned railroad right-of-way was like in 1989, when the founders formed their vision for the Trail, and contrasts that reality with what the Trail has become. Tim is well known for his “Time Travel with Tim” videos, which can be seen at tinyurl.com/timetravelwithtim.
Dinner is provided by Cyd West Catering. MTC member and dedicated home vintner Mary Williams will provide tasty wines.
Because it is a celebration, we have lots of chance and silent auction items that you can stake your claim on, including a “dream” golfing basket, Ray Cook Gyro putter, Seven Springs massage package, Steelers’ memorabilia basket, and Jack Nicklaus commemorative plaque including the back-nine birdie golf ball that resulted in a Master’s Tournament win!
