Lackawaxen River Trails & Lisa Glover of Honesdale Among Awardees
The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau (PMVB) congratulates the winners of the 2022 PA Route 6 Alliance “Do 6” Awards including two award winners which have made significant contributions to the region promoting the development of trail systems and artistic placemaking.
Lisa Glover, Honesdale resident, and the group Lackawaxen River Trails were among the winners announced at the PA Route 6 Alliance Annual Meeting held in September to celebrate the people and projects that help further the mission of supporting the PA Route 6 Heritage Corridor.
2022 Heritage Leadership Award
Lisa Glover was presented with the Heritage Leadership Award in recognition of her “meaningful contributions and/or partnerships that have resulted in the enrichment of our communities through landscape initiatives or historic preservation,” stated a release from the PA Route 6 Alliance. Glover has served on Honesdale Borough Parks & Recreation Commission and has been a major supporter of the Wayne County Arts Alliance as well as its programs. In 2022, she worked with students and volunteers to spearhead a mural project that took a Wayne County-owned tunnel located at the Stourbridge Project in Honesdale along Route 6 and transformed it into a mural depicting what teens wanted to see in their community.
2022 Heritage Tourism Award
Lackawaxen River Trails was presented with the Heritage Tourism Award in recognition of the project that “furthers economic and tourism development while still respecting the heritage and cultural resources of the corridor” shared a release from the PA Route 6 Alliance. Lackawaxen River Trails is a grassroots movement to build an interconnected trail system through Honesdale, White Mill and Hawley. State funding has been secured to build a network of river accesses at those three locations then expand to use the railroad and Route 6 corridor to connect trails in the area as well as the communities.
