Longtime ATC Member Profiled

In the 9 August 2007 issue of the Gazette of Frederick County, Maryland (that is published in Gaithersburg, MD) Katherine Mullen has an article titled "Outdoorsman lives by Boy Scouts’ principles". It is a profile of 70 year old Earl Porter, resident of Lake Linganore.

The article mentions that Porter has "hiked segments of the Appalachian Trail in an April blizzard," that he is active in Scouting, and that "he is also an active member of Trailblazers, a group of volunteers that clean up and maintain the 32-miles of trails in Lake Linganore, and a 30-year member of Appalachian Trail Conservancy."
