At the Venture Group's meeting that was held Wednesday morning the group voted to approve a list of rules that was made for using the building at the Slatington Trailhead. At last month's meeting Nancy Treskot suggested that the group come up with this list of rules, and a committee met in the interim to compile the list.
"This is key for having people use this facility," Jason Breidinger, who is chairman of the Venture Group, said.
According to Breidinger, the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor's landscaping project at the trailhead should be ready to go by the end of the month, and the carpenters should be starting work on the trailhead building shortly.
"By the next meeting we should see that building going up," Breidinger said.
The Venture Group still needs to raise about $25,000 to finish the building project. The Slatington Lions Club is holding a steak fry at the Slatington Skeet Club, 8112 Skeet Club Road, June 26 to benefit the building project. Tickets, which include the meal, drinks and karaoke, are $20.
The next meeting of the Venture Group is scheduled for June 23 at 8:30 a.m. in Slatington Borough Hall.
