Why I love where I live

Fitzpatrick family

“As a kid I remember losing myself in the sacred places of Pike County, PA…

Covered in mud, wet to the waist in the river, a stream or a pond, burned by the sun, those were the happiest days of my life, and they were the days that formed my character. In my lifetime I have seen some of those sacred places desecrated. I support the Conservancy to keep some of our places sacred for my children.
