                          IMPORTANT MEETING AT THE LAKE
                                         APRIL 23--10:15 am

You are invited to attend a very important informational meeting that will be held at Glade Run Lake on Wednesday, April 23rd at 10:15 am.  Representatives from the offices of Governor Corbett, State Senator Vulakovich, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and others will speak about the restoration.

Not a runner?  Plan to make a donation through one of the runner’s personal page that he/she will set up through the CrowdRise site.  Last year, 14 Marathon runners raised over $1,000 for the lake, and we hope to greatly increase that this year with more runners participating. See further information here.
