Board member Bev Spicer received the George Wirt award at yesterday's annual meeting for her service to the PAFFMA. Paul Sebasovich is making the presentation.
PAFFMA President, Jack Graham, made four Presidential awards, a new presentation, to PAFFMA Secretary Lisa Lasalle, PAFFMA 1st Vice President Peter Linehan, Board Member Bill Parr and Sharon Sebasovitch (who has made the banquet centerpieces for many years.)
At yesterday's PAFFMA annual meeting at the Mont Alto Volunteer Fire Dept. Hall Anne Dutlinger gave a presentation on remembering her grandfather, Forrest Dutlinger. Dutlinger was in the first graduating class from the Pennsylvania State Forest Academy. Anne is posing with John Bitzer, who put together the display.
The Forest Heritage and Discovery Center at Caledonia State Park was built back in the CCC days. It is still a very solid building! The entry porch has been starting to show a little wear. This week we stained the porch using an oil-based stain. Now it is good as new, although a second coat in a few weeks wouldn't hurt at all.
