Written by Jim Foster, Community blogger | Jan 10, 2014 10:56 AM

It's my honor to be an officer of Keystone Trails Association.  KTA is the statewide hiking and trails advocacy organization.  All friends of Pennsylvania’s trails are invited to KTA's First Membership Celebration & Film Festival.  It will be held on Thursday, March 20, beginning at 6:30 pm, in the Wesley Center multimedia auditorium of Camp Hill United Methodist Church, 417 S. 22nd Street, Camp Hill, PA 17011.

At this event, we will celebrate KTA's work, our state's precious trails, and - most of all – its membership. Without the support of the wider Pennsylvania hiking community, KTA would not be able to sustain its efforts to protect and promote our trails.

Three trail related videos will be featured:

  • Come Walk with Me: KTA Member Lorrie Preston's travelogue of hiking the Appalachian Trail in Pennsylvania.
  •  Faces of the Appalachian Trail: The Appalachian Trail affects many more people than just hikers. Meet some of the eclectic personalities whose lives are shaped by the trail.
  • Green Tunnel: A six-month journey along the 2,200-mile long Appalachian Trail, condensed and reinterpreted into five minutes of stop-motion.

The cost is $15, which includes a 1-year introductory membership to KTA (new members only).  For complete information, follow THIS LINK to KTA's website.
