Long Trail Festival Wrap-up

The Rutland (VT) Herald has a 29 August 2007 letter to the editor from the Rutland Long Trail Festival organizers Katleen and Wayne Krevetski. It is headlined "Great support for Trail Fest," and offers their thanks by name to many of the individuals and companies that supported this first (of many?) festival. They summarize the festival's activities as follows:
"The hiking community came from as far as New Zealand and Ontario, as well as California and Florida to share their adventures with Trail Fest participants. We had over 100 registered campers and almost 1,000 participants for this first-time event. Over 21 people volunteered (most were first timers) to help the Green Mountain Club with the Appalachian Trail Thundering Brook Falls relocation project in Killington which was a phenomenal first-year effort in helping to finish the first handicapped-accessible Appalachian Trail section in New England."
