Today with the help of 91 year old Syl Schneikart as safety person we cleared a tree off the trail just up river from Shickshinny. We thought we would be clearing two trees, but anonymous friends of the trail cleared the one near the Union Township boat launch.
Thank you to Tony Pszeniczny and his wife Sylvia! While Tony served as a council director, he and Sylvia made significant contributions to The Susquehanna Warrior Trail such as supervising two groups of Lake Lehman high school students while performing maintenance on the trail to satisfy their senior project requirements, organizing an 8K race on the trail, and working with other trail organizations to obtain, install, and interpret the results of trail use counters. Tony also represented us at several trail forums. Thanks again Tony and Sylvia!
The Susquehanna Warrior Trail Council is pleased to announce that Nicole Pagliaro has joined our trail council as a director. Nicole brings a love of the outdoors, enthusiasm, internet skills, and much more. We look forward to her help in managing the Susquehanna Warrior Trail for you.
The Susquehanna Warrior Trail Council directors are:
Seated left to right, Lance Kittelson, president, Max Furek, vice-president
Standing left to right, Dan Shane, treasurer, Sean Baker, Nicole Pagliaro, Ray Zajac, secretary, Frank Coughlin
The Susquehanna Warrior Trail is managed and maintained 100% by volunteers.
We invite you to check us out. Our council meets the last Tuesday of each month (except November and December) in the Shickshinny Borough Building at 6 pm. Meetings generally are less than an hour.
We need much more than mowing grass, clearing trees, and picking up litter.
Attend a couple of our meetings. Get to know us. Maybe you can contribute to the cause by doing something you like to do. As a minimum, you will learn how to manage a trail, and you may have some suggestions for us.
We hope to see you this Tuesday!
Lance Kittelson, Susquehanna Warrior Trail Council President.
This week with the help of Tom Babcock, Dan Shane, and Rose the tractor we removed a large rock blocking a drain pipe at about the 5 mile mark.
On Monday with Ray Zajac’s help we cleared a tree off the trail at about the 5 mile mark. Ray combined his safety/helper duties with a bike ride.
This past weekend with Jason Hilley’s help we mowed the trail surface and edges putting about 20 miles on our old mower. That’s about 60 miles this season. Time to remove the deck to clean, sharpen and lubricate. Thanks again to Kate and Tom Hofherr for donating this valuable tool. The picture on the left shows Jason holding the deck spacer wheel he found. We have been looking for it. The other picture shows leaving West Nanticoke mowing the edges of a new section of trail for the first time.
