Carolina Thread Trail Planning a South Carolina Leg
    The Carolina Thread Trail is planning an extension into South Carolina that will pass through both Andrew Jackson and Landsford State Parks.  The map above is not finalized, but is intended to show roughly where the finished trail will be.  The final location of the trail will depend on exactly where rights of way can be obtained.  The Trail will be open to the public and will link  2.3 million people across 15 counties in North and South Carolina.
    Sections of the Carolina Thread Trail are built by the communities through which the Trail passes. Grants and support are available to communities to help get stated, but the Trail is largely built and maintained by volunteers.  Duke Power and Lowe's Home Improvement Store are corporate sponsors of the project.  More information is available on the Carolina Thread Trail website.

Feeding the Hungry
    Donations to Lancaster County food programs have fallen off recently. The recession increases the number of people facing hunger and the need for food.  The Van Wyck Press is happy to transport food to the agencies serving the needy in Lancaster.  If you have food that you would like to donate and would like us to transport it for you, let me know.
