In 2014, when we did a Golden Spike event in Clinton in the Old Timer Restaurant, we handed out several awards to people who did extraordinary things to get the trail developed. 

  • Secretary Sullivan, who did a lot internally with the Environmental Affairs agencies to move this project forward.

  • Ed Yaglou, on the original Board of Wachusett Greenways

  • The Fisk Family, who trekked the length of the corridor in the 1980s and wrote an as yet unpublished manuscript about the journey.

  • Bruce Pennino, PE, who donated his professional expertise to renovate several old railroad bridges on this corridor.

  • An award to the family of the late Danny O'Brien of DCR. Danny did a lot to get the trail onto the radar screen of the State Parks agency and he designed and planned the Norwottuck section of the MCRT. 

In 2018, we will be presenting seven awards.  You can only guess who will be the awardees this July. ​ To learn more about the history of this.  CLICK HERE.
