Three bids have been received and the Board will meet to review them on Thursday.  They plan to make a decision at that time.  Weather-permitting, construction could begin in May.

The Foundation is currently more than halfway to their fundraising goal of about $200,000.  They currently have $112,000 and hope to reach their goal by the end of the year.

The Foundation is raising money through a brick and tile program.  A $100 donation will buy a brick in someone’s name.  That brick will then be placed at one of five resting areas on the trail.

Anyone interested in making a donation can contact Osterthun at (660) 358-5706.
