On April 10, 2017, IAT Maine honored former Maine Governor Joe Brennan for helping launch the International Appalachian Trail on Earth Day 1993. Joe joked about being the puppet for IAT Founder Dick Anderson. Herb Hartman, Bob Marvinney, Walter Anderson, and Elizabeth Swain all worked in the Brennan administration. Bill Nichols, first Treasurer and Honorary Director of IAT in Maine, was also in attendance.
Thanks Joe and Bill, for being our first champions and first Honorary Directors.
