bulletDec 7th, 2009 Meeting was held at the Glenburn Coffee House to discuss the possibility of forming a "Trails Stewardship Committee." It was informative and well attended. A second meeting is to be scheduled for early in the new year. Contact Tannis Killough for more information.
bulletDec 7, 2009 James Haynes and James Graham approached Midway Council to update them on the local trail system's progress and request Council's support for future projects. The meeting went well. Council will write a letter of support for the project and will commit to offering equipment and manpower to operate equipment next year if we get the funding.
