Heritage Trail Ride successful

Sept. 18, 2013 — The editor:

An enormous “thank-you” to all the folks who helped make our Heritage Trail Ride a great success – we had around 100 riders and are so very happy you came– and to those who supported and contributed to making the Depot into a trailhead/ tourist center under our Flex-E grant project this year. Thinking of the way that people just stepped in, generously giving of time & talent, brings me to tears!

Giving gratitude is a daunting task. Someone is always left out! But here goes. . .

For planning, prepping, supporting, promoting and staffing our Heritage Trail Ride and festivities: Jesse Oney, Terry Reynolds, Janice Hicks, Nici Raybourn, Jackie Clevenger, Cory Claxon, J.

Jim Muncy. . . and the Tyler’s delivery driver who was able to chase down the group during the ride!

And the event simply would not have been possible without our sponsors: Smith’s Hardware, the Olive Hill Times, Scenic Hills Realty, Three Pine Stables, Stephens’ Farm Supply, Rep. Jill York, Sen. Robin Webb, First National Bank, Rock’s Auto Sales, Commercial Bank, Walker’s Family Restaurant, Carter Co.
