Pocahontas County and the SHARC are setting the bar for regional efforts around mountain bike trails and outdoor recreation. Lots of great news will be shared in the near future about projects that are underway.  A recent funding opportunity will provide two new positions in the county to assure trail maintenance going forward. This is an exciting time for SHARC and our community.

Last Friday, the Marlinton Water Plant Open House was a huge success. The kids had fun with the fishing derby and other games. The weather could not have been better, and everyone had a good time. Hopefully, some went away with a better perspective about the working and operations of the water plant itself. Thanks to all of the staff and partners who made the day possible.

Also, just a reminder to watch The Pocahontas Times for an ad listing and link to apply to the Town of Marlinton for an AmeriCorps position to support the recre- ational economy.
