Cool update from recent Mt. Philo Facebook Post

A couple of weeks ago on our facebook page we posted this photo of the rustic wood railing being restored at the Mt. Philo State Park shelter.

Here's a cool update to the story: 

The Seasonal Parks Maintenance Technician performing the work is John Robert Davine.

John Robert’s maternal grandfather was part of the original CCC crew that cut and built the Mt. Philo road and summit area, including the shelter where the railing is being restored, in the 1920’s.

John Robert's dad is Bob Davine, who has been a Parks Maintenance Technician for the past 25+ years.

That makes 3 generations of one family caring for Mt. Philo! That's Vermont for you!
