We received a wonderful response to our request for help from Harry Tucci:

Harry J Tucci Jr <>

to High Peaks Alliance info

I would like to offer you my services as a Board member.  I am intimately familiar with the Mission and service area of the Alliance.  Years,ago before your formation I had formative discussions with Bruce Hazard about attempting a National Heritage Area, an idea I have successful experience with and that I passionately believe the Western Mountains of Maine would certainly qualify for.

I have over 30 years experience serving in the Boards of Land Trusts and Conservancies.  I am familiar with Trail planning, having successfully developed several abandoned rail corridors into trails.  I led the effort to have the Schuylkill River in PA,designated a National Heritage effort and thus am familiar with the development of Management Action Plans as well as tourist signage and brochures.

The High Peaks have so many compelling stories, and they are told by a myriad of strong partners.  The Sandy River railroad, Rangeley fishing, Height of Land, Benedict Arnold, Saddleback, Kingfield, the AT.  There is so much to Build upon as you contemplate expanding your mission.

It would give me undying pleasure to work tirelessly as a Volunteer Board member for such a fine organization.  I have family in Wilton so the High Peaks flow through my veins literally daily.  My only caveat is I don’t live in Maine, I live in PA.  However I am more than willing to perform any Boars duties via email, chat, Skype, phone etc.  at no cost to you.

If you’d like to learn more about what I can offer you as a Board member feel free to give me a call or if you’d like to accept my offer you can either call or reply to this email.

Be assured I will remain a Champion of your efforts no matter what you might decide.

Best Wishes!!!
Harry J. Tucci Jr. KHS
Semper Fidelis, Semper Protinus
