We are getting closer!

Last week, the New London American Legion donated $500 towards the purchase of the trail, and this week, the New London Fraternal Order of Eagles delivered another $1,000 donation. Thanks for your generous contributions.

It’s time for a progress report, except we are progressing slowly. We have won the grant from ODNR FOR 3/4 of the purchase price, and have the remaining money sitting in our treasury, thanks to local grants and donations from Firelands Electric, Willard Hospital, Fund for Huron County, new London Eagles, and several generous individuals and groups. The Title company and the appraiser are almost done. All are waiting on the surveyor. He has been seen around the trail this last week, and expects to be finished by the end of August. We are hoping to finalize the purchase soon after that. Then we can start making plans to develop the trail. Keep watching for updates.
