What to look for on Smart Talk Thursday, September 7, 2017:

Thursday's Smart Talk Road Trip takes the program to the historic Allenberry Resort near Boiling Springs in Cumberland County.

The show touches on history, the area's current and future economy, tourism, fly-fishing in the Yellow Breeches Creek and a campaign to save Children's Lake in Boiling Springs.

The newly renovated Allenberry Resort sits on land once owned by Davey Crockett's uncle -- James Crockett -- in the late 1700s.  That land was farmed and then became a resort and entertainment center 70 years ago.  We'll hear what new owner Mike Kennedy has to say about Allenberry.

Also, appearing are Michelle Crowley, president of the Greater Carlisle Area Chamber of Commerce and Shireen Farr, Chief Operating Officer of the Cumberland Valley Visitors Bureau.

The world famous Yellow Breeches Creek flows past Allenberry and in fact the stream near Allenberry is one of the best places in Pennsylvania to catch a brown trout. Dusty Wissmath, manager of the Boiling Springs TCO Fly Shop stops by to talk about fly-fishing in the Yellow Breeches.

Finally, the Children's Lake in Boiling Springs is in need of upkeep and repairs.  A campaign to raise money to restore the beautiful lake is underway.  Co-chairs of that campaign Jorie Hanson and Liz Knouse joins us.
