PANAMA - An up to $20,000 matching grant from the regional trucking firm, Panama Transfer, netted the exploratory Shelby County Trails Committee an additional $9,750 donation following the group’s fund-raising efforts.
The monies go toward grant-matching opportunities, route exploration and feasibility studies, followed by construction of a multi-use trails once plans have been developed.
One of their most recent events was in March where they hosted an all-you-can-eat Belgian Waffle breakfast and a silent auction.
The organization’s focus is to generate interest in building walking/bike/equestrian trails throughout Shelby County to connect our communities with each other as well as surrounding counties.
Their next meeting will be held Monday, April 24 at 6:30 p.m. at the Shelby County Chamber meeting room.
