Officers, board members, and members of the Over the Hill Gang gathered at the Visitor's Center last week for the presentation of an award. The award was presented by Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation and it was given in honor of WYTC surpassing the $5000 donation level with the Walk for Parks. Congratulations to all!
2020 Virtual Labor Day Poker Run Fundraiser
The Westmoreland Yough Trail Chapter would like to thank everyone that participated in our successful T-shirt Fundraiser. The T-shirts will be printed and should start shipping on Sept. 4 so allow a few days after that to get yours. As we promised, just like our regular Poker Run event, we gave out prizes. The following three people won a $25 Walmart gift card; MaryAnn Slafka, Colleen Baum, and Jacqualyn Williams. We always get great support from the West Newton Bicycle Shop and this year was no exception. The winner of the $100 Gift Certificate to the West Newton Bicycle Shop was Trish Krajzel. All prizes are being mailed to the winners. We hope that everyone enjoys their new T-shirt and wears it in good health. We’ll hope to see you along the trail showing off your 2020 Poker Run T-shirt. Take a picture and send it to the Web Master(email@example.com to be displayed on our web page.
As always we thank you all for your participation and support.
