The Signal Bell Issue #2 - Spring 2018
The Newsletter of the H&F Trolley Trail Association
Greetings from the H&F Trolley Trail Association!
The H&F Trolley Trail Association (HFTTA) hopes that you are enjoying your summer. We have had a busy spring and have passed the 2nd quarter of 2018 with some significant milestones reached.
With regards to the business side, The HFTTA will be filing the required documents to be recognized as a non-profit in the State of Maryland. This step is a necessary one to ensure that the HFTTA is recognized as a tax-exempt entity at the State level as well as the Federal level, for which 501(c)(3) status is already approved. This is another important step in laying a good foundation for a sound charitable organization. Details on how to donate will be forthcoming as these Maryland filings are approved.
The HFTTA is growing! The Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Jared Grimm has accepted the position of Social Media Coordinator for the HFTTA. We will rely on Jared to provide the HFTTA with a prominent media presence so that events and other activities in the organization will not be missed by the public. Jared is off to a running start and has already been busy researching various avenues for establishing a website so that the HFTTA will have a centralized location on the internet. More details to come and hopefully we will soon be able to provide you with our own URL for you to access and enjoy. Thank you Jared!
The HFTTA is now also recognized by the Rails to Trails Conservancy. The HFTTA is excited to be recognized as part of a nationwide network of former rail lines. See us on their website at this link: https://www.traillink.com/trail/h--f-trolley-trail/.
