Friends of Weiser State Forest Group Forming

Jim Theurer is looking for other groups to help out with the Freinds of Weiser Group they are trying to get going. He needs hikers, bikers and equestrians to make it work. Rick, from RCST will likely attend, but we sure could use some other involvement from the club. Here are the details from Mr. Theurer:

Our next meeting for the Friends of Weiser state forest will be held Wednesday April 14 at 6:30 in the park office at Haldeman tract. Marci Mowery from PA Parks & Forests Foundation will be there to tell us what we need to do to organize under their umbrella. What that will do for us is it will put us under their 501c plan so any donations will be tax deductible to the donor. And we would also be eligible to apply for grants. They will also handle all money for us. But we must meet certain requirements which she will explain. But one of the requirements is that we have a diverse organization made up of hikers, bikers, horsemen & anyone else who might use our state forest. So if you know anyone who might be interested in joining us please invite them. Please let Jim know of groups so he can invite them also. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know. Jim Theurer, 717-433-8694 or">jimbob113@hotmailthanks.
