Meet: 10:00am – 11:00am
Location: Our meetup location is just off the Bear Creek / Wilkes-Barre exit ramp, exit #105 of PA 476 North or “the Northeast Extension”. The same meeting spot as Saturday’s PMITM Run.
This will be an easy and relaxed 2-3 hour run up to the lake for lunch at Joe’s Grotto Pizza (yes DE/MD folks, it started here!)
“Harveys Lake is a borough in Luzerne County and is the largest ‘natural lake’ contained entirely in Pennsylvania. Harveys Lake Road is the famous nine mile road that encricles the lake and is named after Benjamin Harvey, who founded the borough in 1781 and was a member of the Sons of Liberty, an eminent colonial-era group that eventually defeated the notion of Great Britain’s Stamp Act. The population was 2,888 at the 2000 census.”
“In 1952 the Pagliante family opened its first pizza parlor in Plymouth and opened its second restaurant known as the Grotto at Sunset at the Lake in 1956. Thirty-two years later, on September 7, 1988, Joe’s Grotto Pizza, which had expanded in previous years, was destroyed by fire. However, the Grotto was rebuilt in spectacular style and is now managed by the Grotto Development Corporation.”
