The FEBT mission to preserve the East Broad Top has not changed. However, the leadership of the FEBT is exploring how our role may shift in order to best continue that mission. The current Board is a fine mix of sage wisdom and youthful energy and are poised to tackle what lays ahead.

In short, I see it as our task to prove Kelly wrong (in only this one case, Kelly has an indisputable track record Hardly! otherwise). The East Broad Top will live on and the Friends will continue to be a key part of the equation. Expect to see much more from the FEBT. Please join/rejoin, contribute, volunteer, and even offer wisdom.

Glad to hear it. I intentionally present a gloomy forcast to these kinds of threads in hopes of waking more people to the need for action before (hope not) it gets too late. Best of luck to the FEBT.

I'm on the distribution for work reports for the FEBT "Boiler House Rats", building restoration crew. I've known one of the leaders of it for over 40 years. I will say that they work near miracles with limited money and resources, managing to squeeze as many results out of every dollar spent as possible. If anyone here is looking for a place to donate to rail preservation that will effectively use your donation for actual work, then the Friends is such an organization.
