BIG THANKS TO OUTGOING PRESIDENT MIKE TRAXLER FOR HIS MANY YEARS OF SERVICE
REI SUPPORTS SRTA
In October, REI opened their first store in the area at 6391 Carlisle Pike in Mechanicsburg and their co-op selected the SRTA to receive a grant for $5,000. The funding will offset the cost of resources utilized by the SRTA including signs, tools, marketing costs, rental fees for our storage locker, and annual expenses to register, maintain, and operate the organization’s powerboat. Thank you, REI!
RIVER TRAIL FUN FACT
The Susquehanna River Water Trail – Middle Section received National Recreation Trail designation in 2008. National Recreation Trails promote some of our country's highest-caliber trails with the intention of providing recreational access to rural and urban communities, economic development through tourism, and healthy recreation opportunities. Almost 1,300 of these trails have been
designated throughout the country.
Our President for the past several years, Mike Traxler, has resigned his leadership post, effective the end of this year. Mike, a Harrisburg area attorney, brought tenacity, energy, and many talents to his service.
SRTA grew under his guiding hand. He will be missed. Despite the change, Mike plans to remain involved in our work. We hope to see him on the trail!
The Association always needs new volunteers and leaders. With Mike’s departure, that need has
increased. Please consider getting more involved in the life of SRTA.

GRA COVID ADJUSTMENTS
The Great River Adventure (GRA) and Pat Reilly Roaring Bull Races scheduled for Saturday June 6, 2020, sponsored by the Susquehanna River Trail Association, sadly, had to be cancelled.
Our priority is to keep people safe, and the COVID pandemic made it impossible to ensure the safety of our race participants and volunteers.
We had hoped to resume GRA and the Pat Reilly Roaring Bull Races this year... BUT it looks like we will not be able to resume until 2023.
For the foreseeable future, our monthly business meetings will be conducted by ZOOM conference.
We will post scheduling updates following these meetings.
