May has been another busy month for those of us in Connellsville. The River Town Corps has put a lot of time and effort into planning the Albert Gallatin Regatta Parade in Point Marion which was held on Saturday May 28. I also was a part of planning and developing a display for the Fayette County Children's Water Festival that was held at the Fayette County Fairgrounds on Tuesday May 24. I have also met with members of California, PA's borough council and planned a town assessment which is going to be held June 6 in town. Also a lot of my month was taken up by the National Scenic and Historic Trails Conference in Abingdon, VA. This conference taught me a lot about the trail systems across America and how they are being maintained and governed. I met a lot of other members of the SCA and I met contacts which could prove useful for my future.
