Like Game of Throne’s Arya Stark, we have finally claimed our name— our project to extend our Macnamara Trail is now known as The Macnamara Trail Project: Extending Arnprior’s Natural Heritage. And our tagline? Woods, Water and Well-Being.
The fundraising committee is planning several events to raise local awareness of the trail extension, starting with tables and tours at Arnprior’s White Pine Festival, centred this year at the Abba Ball Diamonds on McNab Avenue.
We’ll be leading short guided tours of the Trail at defined intervals both Saturday, August 27, and Sunday, August 28 and the Young Macs will be including something for the kids. Let us know if you can help in any capacity such as staffing the table or providing a guided tour. Send an email to Karen Krueger at email@example.com.
Next up will be our screening of The Messenger at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 29, at Arnprior’s O’Brien Theatre. This event, which will be our official fundraising launch, will be preceded by an informal quiz challenge at Danny Mac’s. More details will follow.
