On Labor Day 2012, George and Linda Pettie, owners of the Lake Pointe Inn, will begin five days of bicycling from Pittsburgh, PA to Washington, DC on the Allegheny Passage Trail (145 miles) and C &O Canal Towpath (185 miles) to raise funds for the Caroline A. McNiece Scholarship at the Garrett College.
The Caroline A. McNiece Scholarship was established last year at the Garrett College, a tribute to Caroline’s love for learning & travel and to her service as a mentor to young people during her 14 years as Innkeeper at the Inn on Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County.
Whether your path crossed with Caroline, or you have an interest in supporting the college, we recommend a donation of $ .25 -.50 cents a mile traveled (330 x .25/.50= $82.50 /$165.00)or any small amount that will make a difference for a student at Garrett College.
Contributions can be made to: the Caroline A. McNiece Scholarship c/o Garrett College Foundation, 687 Mosser Road, McHenry, Md. 21541 or you can provide the Foundation with a credit card: 301-387-3131
(Last year, a group of 5 raised funds for People living with Cancer through Livestrong in memory of George’s brother, David. Here’s a link to some photos of the 3 trips we took in the past.
