Donors/Volunteers for the Pennsylvania Conservation Corps Work

We especially want to thank the following whose time and equipment donations were worth thousands of dollars:

Jim Minahan of Decorative Concrete Concepts worked with Dan Fotovich for many weekends to lay the groundwork, select the stones and provide the decorative finish for the stage and pavilion.

Dan Fotovich of Fotovich Excavating resurfaced about 2.75 miles of the Trail. Dan also worked his magic machine by harvesting and placing the large native stones used in construction of the stage at the Quarry.

Mike Hindt and Jeremy Hostetler of The Lane Construction Corporation arranged for heavy equipment to roll the new surface and also install a split rail fence along a narrow portion of the Trail where they had to drill into rock.

The Pennsylvania Conservation Corps, supervisor Paul Will, provided 18 courteous, willing young gentlemen who accomplished so much during the three days of their commitment.

The Pittsburgh Foundation gave the Trail a $5,000 grant to help pay for the resurfacing materials.
