News of Note.
Thanks to the members of our eastern chapters who joined Marci, Beth, and Amanda at French Creek State Park for their retreat. Just like out west, there was good food, great conversations, and wonderful shared ideas.
Philadelphia graphic designer Caleb Heisey (originally from Newport) has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his "PA Patch Coalition." Caleb's idea is to create a stable of embroidered patches - one for each of our 121 state parks. Sales will benefit PPFF, too. Check out the Kickstarter and see some of the lovely designs.
It is almost time to start thinking about your next wall calendar (what? a new year is that close?) and PPFF is considering undertaking the publication of DCNR's state parks calendar. A little survey has been prepared to gauge support and glean information. Let us know your opinion with completion of this little quickie.
Don't forget that if you're out and about Camp Hill on Sunday afternoon, PPFF will participate in the Candy Cane Walk to promote community businesses and community spirit. The event runs from noon until 4:00 and you can pick up your passport, bandana, hitch cover, note cards, living gift, or Inspired by Nature pottery creation.
