THANK YOU!
The Bike-n-Walk Trail Committee would like to thank those that volunteered and plowed or snow blew the trail at various times through the winter. Owen Stong was known to do plowing. There may have been others, too. Eventually the accumulated snow was overwhelming with no place to push it with an ATV plow. Recently, Mike Hartman use his walk behind snow blower and cleared a path through the snow all the way from the west end of town to the flagpole! Thanks Mike!
