The Eastern Trail exists today only due to energy and contributions of our many volunteers. At our recent 2021 Annual Meeting, we announced the following Volunteer Recognition awards:
Outstanding Trail Ambassador
Carol MacAllister — Carol is a Trail Ambassador for the Kennebunk to Biddeford section of the ET. She rides the trail regularly, reports on needed maintenance, collects trash along the trail, and converses with trail users to enhance their visit. Like all of our trail ambassadors, Carol provides an invaluable service acting as the “eyes and ears” on the trail.
Outstanding Events Management
Bryan Gallant and Bob LaNigra — Both Bryan and Bob have proven to be an invaluable team regarding event management for the Maine Lighthouse Ride, John Andrews 5K, MEND 10K as well as ET engagement with Ironman Maine and the Maine Marathon. Their knowledge of race management, timing and course setting are a major reason for our successful ET events each year.
Outstanding Event Volunteer
Cynthia Mollus and Rig Trembley — Cynthia and Rig have volunteered at ET events for several years, particularly the Maine Lighthouse Ride. Their dedication to assisting with pre-event setup and event-day activities has gone above and beyond and helped make our events successful. This year they managed the inaugural Bonfire and Brew event check-in.
