There have been some acts of Vandalism at the Tidioute Hike/Bike Trail. The mile markers have been ripped off the sign posts for the .5 and 1 mile markers. These signs were bolted to the posts.

The next act of vandalism concerns a culvert pipe given to the clean up person by the Bradford Forest Service Office. It was sitting on the side of the trail toward the hill at Salmon Rock. This is about 3 mile down the trail. Someone tried to get the pipe into the river. All that stopped it was a few small trees on the river bank. If the bank had been only weeds, and small brush, the pipe would now be in the river.

This is government property not privately owned, please help to keep it clean and vandalism free.

This was all discovered by the person who volunteers to take care of the mowing and clean of the Tidioute Trail.

Salt Squad begins the new year this Wednesday, Sept. 7, at 7 p.m. at Allegheny Bible Church with a Kick-Off pizza party.

Children participate in Bible verse memorization, Bible lessons, singing, crafts related to the scripture lesson, and of course, snacks!

The ministry of the Salt Squad program is to encourage the understanding and memorization of the scriptures, and especially to ensure the children’s understanding of Jesus Christ’s salvation message of the Gospel and how the Bible, from Old to New Testament, proclaims it. The program was developed by Pastor Dale Timco during his years in youth ministry in the Pittsburgh area.

Evan’s Market pizza and beverages will be provided.

Open Letter To

Tidioute Community

A letter from Desiree McChesney: “After the unforeseen circumstances at the 8th Annual Remagen Reenactment on Saturday, August 6 when I was unable to sing the National Anthem, I felt the need to address a letter to our community and its Veterans. I have always looked forward to the reenactment every year and was honored to be chosen to sing the National Anthem at this year’s event. However, due to a miscommunication on the time I had arrived, victory curls in my hair and all, moments too late to sing. Though this mistake was no one’s fault, I felt compelled to write to you to clear the air of any misconceptions. I only hope that I did not offend any of our Veterans or townspeople due to this unfortunate mix-up”. Sincerely, Desiree McChesney

Open Letter To

Tidioute Community

A letter from Desiree McChesney: “After the unforeseen circumstances at the 8th Annual Remagen Reenactment on Saturday, August 6 when I was unable to sing the National Anthem, I felt the need to address a letter to our community and its Veterans. I have always looked forward to the reenactment every year and was honored to be chosen to sing the National Anthem at this year’s event. However, due to a miscommunication on the time I had arrived, victory curls in my hair and all, moments too late to sing. Though this mistake was no one’s fault, I felt compelled to write to you to clear the air of any misconceptions. I only hope that I did not offend any of our Veterans or townspeople due to this unfortunate mix-up”. Sincerely, Desiree McChesney

Reenactment Success WWII

Once again the WWII Reenactment was a success in Tidioute.

Nearly 3000 spectators watched from where every they could find a place to sit or stand as the Americans fought the Germans and drove them back across the bridge and won the battle on Saturday, August 6.

Civilians were forced and escorted out of their village.

The battle started at Tidioute Creek next to the Tidioute Towers and traveled along King Street fighting their way to Buckingham St, battled the Germans across the bridge even after an attempt by the Germans to blow up the bridge. The battle continued up the hillside on the route 62 side of the river until the Germans surrendered.

Lee Lindemuth was the MC for this event again this year and he had his work cut out for him as the PA System broke down at the last minute prior to the battle. Lindemuth expresses his apology for the technical difficulties.

Lindemuth introduced all the WWII Veterans that were present and out the eighteen that were present, two of them had actually fought with the 99th Infantry Division in the real battle. They were Merle Kibby of Pittsfield who served from 1942 to 1945 and Harry McCracken who served from 1942 to 1946. Harry had crossed the Rhine on a Pontoon Bridge after the bridge had collapsed. While there he found his brother in a POW Camp.

Tidioute resident Bill Brown who served in the U.S. Army from 1944-1946 was also present and recognized with the other WWII Veterans.

Tidioute residents who participated in the reenactment were Gavin Dashner, Mark Veasey, Jerod Veasey and Mindy Veasey.

There was over 200 reenactors participating in this event this year and several more civilians participating than in the past.

The Reenactment committee would like to thank all those who participated in this annual event, thank you to those who came to watch and to the property owners who gave permission to use their property for the event and to those who donated bottles of water.

Among the many vendors was Mark Nickerson of Warren with plenty of memorabilia from his Military and Sporting Collectibles Store. With his knowledge of the history of the Battle at Remagen he was able to assist visitors with their questions.

Congratulations to the committee and reenactors for an excellent job they all did to make this another successful year.
