brought to you by Joe Harold, Appalachian Trail Museum Manager
The Museum has been open for more than a month now and the numbers have been pretty impressive. There are still some slow days, which will continue until the schools let out, but each day seems to have an interesting mix of visitors.
Thanks to all of you for your help. It is certainly appreciated.
Big Weekend Coming up for the Museum
On Friday, June 3rd at 6 pm, we will assemble at the Allenberry Resort to induct four honorees who have made significant impacts to the Trail and Trail Culture. Among them will be our own A.T. Museum Society President, Larry Luxenberg. You can read about all the inductees on the News page of the website. Buy your tickets here.
On Saturday, June 4th, the excitement continues with the Grand Opening of our new lower level Children's Area that has been in the works for several months. The ribbon cutting and dedication will take place at 10 am. After that we will have a Children's Festival with music, story telling, Leave No Trace activities, a survival lesson, a Nature Scavenger Hunt, a make your own Trail Mix table and more.
The Volunteer Picnic will also take place on Saturday for all prior, present and aspiring volunteers at the museum. We will try to feed all comers, as we show our appreciation for our volunteers and welcome any interested parties who want to help the Museum.
You can sign up to help with the Festival and Cookout here.
