New Tour Contact
After many many years of being the contact person to arrange special tours, George Rutherford has given up that task. He will lead tours, just has too many things on his mind and often forgot to go down so asked the board to name somebody new!
Anyone wishing to arrange a special tour may now contact Julia Catalano at 724-9841 or Chuck Groger at 814-382-8722.
We still have some 2015 and 2016 calendars -- both featuring some great pictures -- available.
