I was in Broad Top Twp. this afternoon for a groundbreaking ceremony. A long awaited rail-trail, the first in Bedford County, was officially recognized by the trail organizers and a group of government officials including the Secretary of DCNR. The sun was shining and the scenery was gorgeous at the trail head. It was great to see the progress on this trail that will draw people in from far away and be an oft used amenity by the locals. I ended the day at the Blair County Assoc. of Township Officials Convention held at the Geeseytown Fire Hall. They had a big crowd for the turkey dinner and program, which included presentations from Penndot and the Intermunicipal Recycling Committee. I enjoyed breaking bread with these people who are the front line of government services.
