Before receiving his gift from PACAA members at the 2013 Fall Annual PACCA Meeting, Paul Craig gave his thanks and appreciation to the group for their effort in Galaxy IV in Pittsburgh. 

Paul is from a long line of Pennsylvania agricultural agents that have proudly served as president in the national association (NACAA).  Go here to check out the long history of PACAA members that moved up the ladder. Thanks to Craig Williams for digging up the photos. 

The painting he received was titled 'Train Tracks' by Dan Christ.  This rocky ledge overlooks Penn's Creek above the railroad tunnel and bridge just down stream from Coburn. The railroad was built in 1879 for the logging industry, and Poe Valley was the site of a major lumber mill. Depicted here is a Shay engine delivering a train of log-filled cars to the mill. It was during this era that the last lions were reportedly observed in the area. This rock outcrop fills one's imagination as a recluse for a lion. Could this be the last Nittany lion?
