GRAND OPENING CEREMONY
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1
12:00PM - 2:00PM

The day we've been waiting for is nearly here!  MARC is planning a partial opening of the first 0.4 mile-long portion of the North Branch Canal Trail in Mahoning Township, Montour County on Thursday, October 1, 2015 from 12:00pm - 2:00pm.  

After more than a decade of hard work, it's our great pleasure to invite you to join us on Thursday, October 1, 2015, from 12:00pm - 2:00pm, to celebrate the official grand opening of the first 0.4 mile-long section of the North Branch Canal Trail.  Rain or shine, we'll honor those who have worked to make this day possible, hike the newly opened section of trail and enjoy some light refreshments with many of our project partners.

PARKING: Please park at the Danville Soccer Park, located on E. Market Street, across from the Danville State Hospital.  Please plan to be parked by no later than 11:50am so that Montour County Transit vehicles can shuttle you from your vehicle to the trailhead in time for the 12:00pm start.  You'll be shuttled back to your vehicle at the end of the event.  Limited parking is available at the trailhead for those with mobility restrictions or other special concerns.  To request special parking accommodations, please contact Bob Stoudt at RStoudt@MontourRec.com.

ATTIRE:  This is a casual event.  Please wear your favorite hiking footwear and weather-appropriate clothing.

RSVP:  We ask that you RSVP for this event to Bob Stoudt atRStoudt@MontourRec.com by noon on Tuesday, September 29, so that we can plan for refreshments and transportation.  However, this event is open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
