    MUSEUM DISPLAY AT THE "VIEWS FROM THE MAINE WOODS, 2017 ATC BIENNIAL" ~ MUSEUM BENEFIT ! ~
    ~ MUSEUM HOURS ~ PARK PROGRAMS ~ APPALACHIAN GEOPARK INITIATIVE ~ & MORE !


    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,

    Here is an acknowledgement note of thanks to the A. T. Museum

    for being an exhibitor at the 2017 ATC Biennial Conference at
    Colby College, Waterville, Maine last weekend (8/4 - 8/6, Fri. - Sun.):
    " Dear Maine 2017 ATC Conference Exhibitor:
    On behalf of the Maine Appalachian Trail Club, AMC Maine Chapter,
    Appalachian Trail Conservancy, and the Conference Steering Committee
    we would like to thank you for being an exhibitor at the Conference.
    With attendance at the conference topping 1000 folks, 50 exhibitors,
    100 hikes and excursions, and nearly 100 concurrent sessions,
    the Conference was a great experience.

    Thanks again for your participation,

    Holly Sheehan and Tom Mullin
    Exhibits Co-Coordinators "

    APPALACHIAN TRAIL MUSEUM EXHIBIT TABLE:
    Our A. T. Museum table was set up early Friday morning, August 4th.
    We managed to get an extra table through the efforts of Tom Mullin,
    one of the Exhibits Co-Coordinators ~ so we had plenty of room, not only
    for the 3 table-top easels holding poster photos of the Museum, but a
    layout of many of the car-window decals of the Museum logo with the
    website address in its lower margin, as well as many donor/membership
    FORMS. Special thanks go to Jim "Early Bird" Foster for supplying us
    with his wonderful, computer-driven video TV-like screen and the new
    video (with a music audio) of many aspects of our Museum ~ it had
    slides of the "2010 Grand Opening", the AT Hall of Fame exhibits, many
    pics of The Museum through the last eight years (both inside and outside),
    and various slides of past Museum activities. Special thanks go to the
    ATC husband and wife team of Laurie and Richard Potteiger for picking up
    all this video equipment, hauling it to Colby College, and passing it along
    to us ~ MANY THANKS, Laurie and Richard.

    Between Larry Luxenberg, Museum President, his wife Frieda, and myself
    (Red Wolf, membership secretary), we were able to get the video loaded
    and operational all day Friday during the registration period ~ the hall was
    packed with hikers all that day ! Jim came early Saturday and got it
    set back up for the day and with the audio going strong.

    We heard many favorable comments about our A. T. Museum display.
    It was set up until the Exhibits Hall was closed Sunday at 12 noon.
    Here are some photos taken by either Laurie or Frieda. I hope you enjoy
    them, just click on each of these,

    Larry and Bill O'Brien conducted the A. T. Museum Workshop program
    early Monday morning. I attended it, and passed out all the donation/
    membership FORMS which I had with me ! We hope some of those return
    soon to the treasurer with more financial support for our A. T. Museum ?
    If you can donate some time as a volunteer at the Museum, you are
    most welcome and appreciated. Your financial contributions not only
    "keep the lights on", but also allows us to complete the expansion into
    the entire building !
    Thank you. Your support is appreciated .

    SNOW MOOSE PICS ! ~ USED HIKER GEAR SALE TO BENEFIT MUSEUM ( ITEMS NEEDED)
    ~ GATHERING LINKS ~ AUG- SEPT PARK PROGRAMS ~ NEW MUSEUM HOURS & MORE !


    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,


    First, I have a series of photos I want to share with you,
    click on, A BEAUTIFUL SNOW MOOSE !


    3 MUSEUM TABLES RESERVED AT THE GATHERING ! :
    As August begins to wind down into September, and then,
    after only 30 days..................................
    ("thirty days has November, April, June, and September",
    please excuse, but I just couldn't let that go bye ~ RW),
    October ! ~ and THE GATHERING !
    ~ FRIDAY, OCT. 6th. through 9th.

    Much attention begins to focus on this upcoming hiker event.

    We have reserved three tables for the Appalachian Trail Museum
    display and its "USED-BUT-GOOD-GEAR" BENEFIT SALE ~ one
    table for the Museum's display and the other two for sale items.
    This benefit sale is to help raise the much needed funds to
    outfit the Museum's upper levels, now that it is accessible via
    the new ramps. Professional quality exhibits are expensive;
    the continued interior renovation is expensive; furniture and the
    electronic equipment needed for use in operations with visitors
    by the volunteer docents is expensive; just "keeping the lights on"
    is expensive. Help us have a successful USED GEAR BENEFIT and raise
    a substantial amount of funding through your contributions
    of used-but-good hiker items and through your purchase of any
    needed items you may find there.
    WHEN: - FRIDAY, OCT 6 as soon as we can man the tables, we will
    take your donated gear items, as well as entertain purchase offers.
    - SATURDAY, OCT 7 all day until 5 PM ~ we will announce the total
    amount of ALL SALES at the evening activity.
    Your support is appreciated by your Appalachian Trail Museum.
    For this Hiker Gear Sale to benefit the A. T. Museum, and to raise the
    substantial funds, WE NEED ANY ITEMS you may wish to contribute.
    Give them to anyone at the Museum tables in the Hiker Fair EARLY so that
    they will have a good amount of time to be sold.

    This was a REALLY FUN EVENT when we did it the last time in 2014
    at the Gathering in Williams College, Williamstown, Massachusetts.
    Everyone came by, two tables PLUS of gear items were donated,
    bid offers were made on items and taken, everyone had A BLAST and our
    A. T. Museum benefited ~ let's do it again ! PLEASE, don't forget to
    come by the Museum tables and "make-an-offer" on an item you like !

    CORRECT LABOR DAY MUSEUM HOURS ~ A REVIEW - IAT DISPLAY AT THE ATC BIENNIAL &
    THE LONG DISTANCE HIKER'S RECEPTION - & MORE


    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,

    First, here are the correct hours the A. T. Museum will be open this
    coming Monday ~ Labor Day - SPECIAL HOURS: 12 NOON to 4 PM

    Here is some more about the 2017 ATC BIENNIAL,
    F. Y. I. ~

    INTERNATIONAL APPALACHIAN TRAIL AT 2017 ATC BIENNIAL:
    The IAT had an excellent display table at the recent ATC Biennial,
    Colby College, Waterville, Maine. Additionally, it led several
    of the Biennial workshops in relation to the IAT and its impact !
    The long-distance hiker reception, the featured event Sunday evening,
    was co-sponsored by the IAT, Maine Chapter and the Appalachian Long
    Distance Hikers Association (ALDHA). At this event, Dave Starzell received
    "high praise for his determination and leadership skills which resulted in
    the U.S. government acquiring thousands of parcels of land along the AT,
    making the AT a permanent feature of the American landscape."
    Don and Paul then presented Dave with a framed certificate as one
    of IAT Maine's first class of Honorary Directors. ALDHA and our
    A. T. Museum were represented at this reception by many members;
    I'd be afraid to list them since that list would be too short as I would
    probably forget and leave some out of the listing ! ~ GOOD TURNOUT !

    MY OBSERVATION:
    I personally really enjoyed the Hiker Reception; it was an excellent way to
    end a fantastic weekend; afterward, I went to the Jazz Music & Dance
    evening entertainment ~ WHAT A JAZZ BAND !
    It had 5 saxophones, 5 trumpets, 5 trombones, 2 electric guitars,
    a keyboard, a piano, three clarinets, and a singer !
    I lingered there until 10 PM !
    And then finally went then to bed.

    Monday morning we had the A. T. Museum workshop ~ Museum President,
    Larry Luxenberg led it, with Bill O'Brien, Museum Secretary showing slides.
    I was able to hand out ALL of the membership/contribution forms save two !
    After this workshop, I left and began my 30-hour trip back to Savannah on
    two trains.

    What a BLAST the 2017 Biennial was !

    HAPPY TRAILS !

    A. T. TIME CAPSULE FROM 1985 :

    Since 1985 was for me personally right in the middle
    of the period I was hiking AT sections, especially in the
    Great Smoky's National Park for two weeks at a time in
    the back country, this link from the "Summer ALDHA Newsletter"

    CHERISHED AT ARTIFACTS PRESERVED ~ PICS ABOUT THE MUSEUM ~ MUSEUM'S BENEFIT HIKER GEAR SALE ! ~
    ~ ~ STATE PARK'S OCTOBER PROGRAMS ~ FALL FURNACE FESTIVAL ! ~ THE 2017 GATHERING ~ & MORE !

    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,


    I'd like to share some photos of some of our Museum's
    most cherished AT-historical artifacts, so here is a little tour of three
    of them in the exhibit case of each; and then three pics around our fine
    building. To get started, artifacts of the man who had the "trail" idea,
    click on,
    Benton MacKaye's typewriter & felt hat

    now the man most responsible for building the AT, click on,
    Myron Avery's measuring wheel & other trail building equipment

    and the first "AT Thru-hiker", click on,
    Earl Shaffer's pith helmet, his AT book, and some hiking equipment

    these next three photos are of interesting spots around the building
    itself, the first pic is of the building's outside, so click on,
    Our A. T. Museum in early spring 2017

    then, a look inside at the hiker's corner (all WELCOME !), click on,
    Museum's Hiker Corner

    and, finally, a look out back and downhill, click on,
    Museum fire-circle's lazy, hazy smoke

    As we go into our last month of the 2017 Museum's season, it
    seems only right to reflect back on this past year, as well as back to
    the beginning of operations in this "Old Mill" building of ours. Much
    has been accomplished in creating a first-rate museum for our beloved
    Appalachian Trail through the tireless efforts of many supporters by,
    not only their hard volunteer work and long hours, but through a high
    degree of dedication; through the results of efforts seen everywhere
    on site; through the serious and generous financial donations over the
    more than 15 years (of which I know); and through the moral support
    we continue to receive from all quarters ! ~ THANK YOU .

    Once again, we have a little, but FUN attempt at raising some of the
    much needed funding for outfitting the upper levels of The Museum ~
    THE MUSEUM BENEFIT SALE of USED-BUT-GOOD HIKER GEAR
    at the upcoming ALDHA GATHERING ~ and we need your help !
    If you have any type of used, but service-able gear of any kind you're
    not using, how about donating it to our Museum Benefit ? Just bring it
    by the Museum tables at the Gathering early Friday or Saturday and hand
    it to one of us at the tables. Then check by later for anything you need
    and can put to good use, then purchase it "at a bargain price" !
    You'll get a GOOD DEAL AND HELP YOUR Appalachian Trail Museum !
    HEY ! ...that's a WIN-WIN ANYWAY YOU LOOK AT IT !
    ~ hikers swap good gear, and our Museum makes a little cash !

    VOLUNTEER RECOGNITION LUNCH ~ TOUR OF MUSEUM'S OUTSIDE (south-side) ~
    ~ 2018 AT HALL OF FAME BANQUET PRESS RELEASE ! & MORE !


    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,
    The Appalachian Trail Museum closed for the winter;
    it will reopen in April 2018. Last weekend on Sunday,
    November 5th., the annual Volunteer Recognition Lunch
    was held at Ironmaster's Mansion (just west of the Museum) !
    Each year we recognize our faithful volunteers, with special
    awards for different categories of service, and everyone received
    a 2018 Honorary A. T. Museum Membership; a membership card;
    an acknowledgement note of gratitude; and one of our special
    A. T. Museum car-window decals ! These volunteers make it
    possible for our Appalachian Trail Museum to keep its doors open.
    They deserve a big "THANK YOU" from us all.

    There was quite a crowd, as usual, with plenty of good food, as
    well as some excellent conversations. The lunch was enjoyed by all !
    Later my shuttle driver friend, Michael Gelinas, and I rambled about
    the Ironmaster's property snapping some photos; at the end
    of the pics is a list of our honored Volunteers ! Here is the link
    to these photos ~ click on,
    IRONMASTER'S PHOTOS & MUSEUM VOLUNTEERS

    We also wandered down to the Museum and took a series of
    photos from the downhill side. They really give a different perspective
    of the "MASSIVE" construction of the ramps to the upper levels !
