The York, Southern York County, and Red Lion-Dallastown Rotary Clubs joined together in the fall of 2018 to restore a historic landscape architecture originally consisting of 400 sycamore trees.  These trees were originally planted by the War Mothers Club following World War I as a memorial to all those who served in that war.  Known as the Road of Remembrance Veterans Memorial, these trees were placed along 12 miles of the Susquehanna Trail from the Maryland Line to Jacobus.  Approximately 200 of these century-old trees were still standing when this restoration effort began and to this point, 137 young trees have been planted over the past year and a half, with a goal of 200 restored trees still in mind.

Local Scouting groups are invited to attend the Trees for the Trail Dedication Ceremony on November 10, 2019, at 2 PM at Susquehannock High, 3289 Fissels Church Road, Glen Rock, PA.  The event will be held outside in the stadium (will be moved inside to the auditorium in case of inclement weather.  Scouting groups attending are asked to wear their uniforms.

The ceremony for this historic event is expected to take approximately one hour and will include patriotic music and a tribute to our Veterans. All of the volunteers and contributors to this event will also be recognized.  A special printed program will be provided as a keepsake.  Anyone attending is encouraged to “Bring a Vet.”

Scouting groups who plan to attend are asked to RSVP with the number of people attending from your unit.  Please email your RSVP and attendance information to Lindy Sweeney, Dedication Ceremony Chairperson, at lsweeney75@gmail.com.  If any special seating accommodations are required, please let Lindy know.

For more information, please see the official invitation for the dedication ceremony.
