We will be meeting at the Laurel Mountain Warming Hut at 9:30AM.  The Warming Hut is located at 1120 Laurel Summit Road in Boswell, PA.   This particular work day coincides with Public Lands day.  There will be a prize raffle for the volunteers, drinks, and ‘snack bags’  provided by DCNR for you to grab and take with you out onto the trails. Please come prepared to the work day with sturdy boots, long pants, work gloves, eye protection, and any other comfort items you may need.  Any tools that we'll need will be provided by DCNR.

Annual PACCSA Picnic Scheduled for Sunday August 14th in North Park!!

Join PACCSA for our summer picnic on Sunday, August 14th!  This year we'll be returning to North Park in the Henderson pavilion located off of Babcock Blvd. near the swimming pool.  Look for our bright PACCSA and Fischer signs near the Henderson pavilion parking area.  We'll kick off at noon (12:00 PM) with hotdogs, hamburgers and veggie burgers for everyone.  After eating, enjoy fellowship, fun games, and everything North Park has to offer with your PACCSA friends.  This event is open to all PACCSA members and their families.  If your PACCSA membership has lapsed, please renew by clicking here so you can join in on the fun!

Please feel free to bring a food item to share with your ski buddies!  Also, North Park has lots of trails and playgrounds for the kids.  It's a great place for mountain biking, and you can canoe or kayak on the lake.  In addition, the Lake Shore Drive loop is a great place to rollerski, so bring 'em if you got 'em!
