JUNE 2004 MEMBERSHIP PROFILE
George Leigey removing the metal posts in the center
of the trail.
Leigey has been a member of SSRTA for 4 years. He
is a Safety Committee Chairperson. George and his
wife Diane live in Rebersburg, PA. They like to
spend time with their four daughters and grandson.
George works for Beavertown Block Company Inc. in
Pleasant Gap and has been able to have them donate
construction materials and a raffle prize for a
recent fundraiser. Diane is the Manager for the
Texaco Pleasant Gap Food Mart. They enjoy riding
their ATVs on the trail. They have been at most
of the work details. George’s input and hard
work have made the safety construction projects
go smoother (old tie removal skid plates, panel
placement, and fastening to railings). George has
been the driving force behind the most recent work
detail. His thoughts and enthusiasm on the removal
of the rails that stick up from the trail surface
will make travel on the trail safer for everyone.
Most of the rails have been removed from the Viaduct
to the Gillentown trailhead.
