    SOME SELECT MOUNTAIN MUSIC :

    The music played in the southern Appalachians for the past 200

    or more years has been the basis for modern "bluegrass music".
    I spent time around Damascus, Virginia in 1997 and on several nights
    in each week we would take in " impromptu gatherings of local musicians"
    at either town stores, community centers, even at a one engine firehouse !
    Now, when I make it up to those mountains, I like to take in the local
    musical gatherings, wherever I may find them ~ often, the music played
    in these small events is really quite good indeed !
    So, I want to pass along the following professional musical program which
    was performed in my hometown Savannah, Georgia at our annual
    Savannah Music Festival, click on: The Earls of Leicester

    HAPPY TRAILS !

    ~ PLAQUE DEADLINE SOON (12/31/16) & MORE !


    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,

    Here at the end of November, in the Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend,
    we want to express our gratitude to the many generous volunteers of
    work, of time, of vital financial contributions, and of support of all kinds.
    "THANK YOU", you are appreciated and are an encouragement to us all.

    Jack Adams, after a long time of meticulous attention to detail, as well
    as after making several large donations of construction materials,
    has finished the ramps to the upper levels of our building ! Allowing
    access to these upper floors will more than double our space for
    exhibits, research, office work, and storage ! Work has already begun
    on the interior of these floors. We look forward to another great season
    as we begin to utilize the added space.

    In 2017, our A. T. Museum's success will surpass all expectations !
    YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT IS VITAL TO OUR EXPANSION .

    Here is a series of photos showing these new ramps:

    The holidays are upon us ! With a "polar vortex" bearing
    down, even all the way down here to Savannah, it's beginning
    to feel like the season. With all the decorations around and up,
    it even looks like it ! ~ HAPPY HOLIDAYS !

    We continue mentioning the upcoming DEC. 31 DEADLINE for
    every one's plaque contributions. All will count toward our current
    Appalachian Trail Museum Building Fund Campaign. Don't miss
    your opportunity to have a listing on the campaign's permanent plaque
    which will be hung in The Museum next June 3rd., the Saturday
    after it is on display at the A. T. Hall of Fame Banquet June 2nd. !
    The over $227,000 raised by this campaign has funded not only
    daily operations since 2012, but will allow us to continue expansion
    and the outfitting of the upper two floors of our "Old Mill" building.
    We still must wok at fund-raising since the outfitting of these
    two floors will be expensive to do as professionally as possible.
    We want our A. T. Museum to be top notch ! And it should be,
    since it is "The Museum" of "The Premiere National Scenic Trail
    ~ the Appalachian Trail". "Thank you for your support, not only
    is it vital, but know it is appreciated and well used".
    ~ see last paragraphs of this "Museum Update" for donation info.

    Joe Harold is ending his last month as our Museum Manager,
    and we have been trying to give him work filling orders from
    the Museum's online store. He recently emailed, "We have had over
    4,000 visits to the store in the last 7 days and I have sold some
    items, including some Earl Shaffer Foundation stuff. I just put our
    two books on sale for 10% off!"
    ~ ~ therefore, to try and keep him busy filling orders, and since
    that can only be done with your help, here are some direct links to
    groups of items of which you might wish to choose and purchase
    gifts for those you know or for your own use:

    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,

    Here are 2 photos of the season (by sure to click on the
    "+" tab to increase pic size as you wish):
    ~ click on:
    VIEW OF THE NORTHERN PRESIDENTIALS IN WINTER

    ~ and click on:
    WINTER - ICEWATER SPRING SHELTER, GREAT SMOKYS




    The holidays are upon us ! With a "polar vortex" bearing
    down, even all the way down here to Savannah, it's beginning
    to feel like the season. With all the decorations around and up,
    it even looks like it ! ~ HAPPY HOLIDAYS !

    We continue mentioning the upcoming DEC. 31 DEADLINE for
    every one's plaque contributions. All will count toward our current
    Appalachian Trail Museum Building Fund Campaign. Don't miss
    your opportunity to have a listing on the campaign's permanent plaque
    which will be hung in The Museum next June 3rd., the Saturday
    after it is on display at the A. T. Hall of Fame Banquet June 2nd. !
    The over $227,000 raised by this campaign has funded not only
    daily operations since 2012, but will allow us to continue expansion
    and the outfitting of the upper two floors of our "Old Mill" building.
    We still must wok at fund-raising since the outfitting of these
    two floors will be expensive to do as professionally as possible.
    We want our A. T. Museum to be top notch ! And it should be,
    since it is "The Museum" of "The Premiere National Scenic Trail
    ~ the Appalachian Trail". "Thank you for your support, not only
    is it vital, but know it is appreciated and well used".
    ~ see last paragraphs of this "Museum Update" for donation info.

    Joe Harold is ending his last month as our Museum Manager,
    and we have been trying to give him work filling orders from
    the Museum's online store. He recently emailed, "We have had over
    4,000 visits to the store in the last 7 days and I have sold some
    items, including some Earl Shaffer Foundation stuff. I just put our
    two books on sale for 10% off!"
    ~ ~ therefore, to try and keep him busy filling orders, and since
    that can only be done with your help, here are some direct links to
    groups of items of which you might wish to choose and purchase
    gifts for those you know or for your own use:

    WONDERFUL GIFTS
    From our A. T. Museum's "ONLINE STORE"

    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,

    Since many of our friends are Canadian and we support their
    International Appalachian Trail (www.iat-sia.com) efforts, I came across
    a Canadian subject that apparently is well-known in Canada, but
    of whom few here in the USA know; and I thought that here at
    the Holidays it would be appropriate to share. I offer this as
    a cultural subject for whatever it may be worth to my readers.
    MERRY CHRISTMAS !
    Here is a holiday gift to you, a series of links,
    which I hope you may enjoy:
    ~ THE HURON CAROL
    All deal with the first North American Christmas Carol,
    written in 1642 by Father Saint John de Brébeuf SJ
    for his missionary work with the native american tribe
    of the "Wyanbottes", known to the French as "The Huron".
    They occupied the now Canadian province of Ontario.

    The first link is my favorite, with the aurora borealis pics,
    the native american drumming, and the lyrics.
    BE SURE TO CLICK ON THE FULL SCREEN ICON (lower right).
    HURON CAROL

    The next link is the lyrics of all four verses written out
    with only instrumental music. No need to click on the
    updated offering since the link as is is the best version.
    THE HURON CAROL - LYRICS OF ALL VERSES

    This next link to The Huron Carol contains a video of what it may
    have been like at Father Brébeuf's mission with the arrival of
    the Wyanbottes for services.
    Again, be sure to click on "FULL SCREEN".
    HURON CAROL ~ NATIVE AMERICAN VIDEO

    And lastly, a video (long) of the "Story of The Huron Carol",
    which seems to have a volume problem, but some great video
    all in native attire ! Again, Click on "FULL SCREEN":
    THE STORY OF THE HURON CAROL

    MERRY CHRISTMAS !

    LAST POST HERE FOR 2016 ! ~ ~ SEE YAH NEXT YEAR ~ same FORUM, same thread !
    .............READERS, THANK YOU .


    Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,

    DEADLINE FOR PLAQUE = TOMORROW AT MIDNIGHT (DEC 31, 2016) !

    TO DONATE ~ see last paragraphs of this post.

    Here is a seasonal photo I hope you enjoy, click on:
    WINTER SNOWMAN AT 5,300 FEET


    One surprise fact about the A. T. Museum is how much it has become
    an "oasis-for-hikers" ~ they are ALWAYS WELCOME & there is NEVER AN ADMITTANCE FEE.
    In fact, The Museum has a sitting area for thru-hikers who may want to stop and take a break.
    They are really celebrities to all of us at The Museum, and especially for
    the state park visitors who may happen to have stopped in also !

    Here is some feedback I have received lately:
    ~ Just wanted to pass along how impressed I am at the progress made on the museum.
    I passed through Pine Grove Furnace in May 2013 - I cannot believe how far things have come since then.
    Glad I have been able to donate to help the museum and to see the funds put to such great work.

    So, Museum Supporters, we hope we continue to support the entire hiking community ~ a major
    emphasis of our mission statement. And that you are pleased with how we are spending your
    most generous financial support in our operations and in our continued expansion ?
    Your support is vital, it is an encouragement to all us volunteers, it funds our daily operations and
    the expansion into the entire "Old Mill" building, and it is appreciated ~ THANK YOU .

    HAPPY TRAILS ! ~ RED WOLF o'da SMOKY'S

    aka robert croyle, membership secretary

    PS:

    ​Dear Appalachian Trail Museum Friends,

    MID-POINT VIEW OF TOP DECK & RAMP'S BOTTOM !

    I imagine these ramps will see a LOT OF TRAFFIC in 2017;
    even if these upper floors do not have an "OPENING" this year, but next,
    the tremendous amount work involved in the outfitting of the expanded areas
    will keep these ramps and the inside small stairs very busy INDEED !



    MID-POINT VIEW OF TOP DECK & RAMP'S BOTTOM ~
    ~ 2017 READY ACCESS TO THE UPPER 2 FLOORS ! ~ VERY EXCITING !


    In fact, the inside construction renovation still continues into even the small details
    of attic and storage doors ~ to see these doors,
    click on: SOME JANUARY UPPER-FLOOR RENOVATION WORK

    BOY ! ~ ~ HOW SMOOTH & CLEAN the walls and ceilings look ! MANY THANKS to

    all that you do ~ THANK YOU .

    MANY THANKS to everyone of our financial supporters for your most generous
    support these past three years of the BUILDING FUND CAMPAIGN (2013 - 2016).
    Your support has not only funded the daily operation expenses, but also has allowed
    the tremendous expansion we now begin to actually see !
    JUST IMAGINE THIS HARD FACT ~ Your financial support, to-date, to our current
    Building Fund Campaign has brought in a TOTAL IN EXCESS OF $259,600 !
    All these funds are carefully put to wise, "Brick-'N-Mortar" use by our volunteers.
    "Thank you . Your vital support is appreciated", Red Wolf .
