COVID severely impacted our 2020 season and fundraising, but we're ready to move forward in 2021 with your support. Antenna Trail Challenge (ATC) proceeds will support Chatham Marconi programs and operations.  Visit our website for more information about the Center and learn more about the scenic Antenna Trail located on the 13 acre campus.
