Dirt Report 8/25/2012 "Highland Park New Trail Party"

Cyclists and Hikers started the day exploring the new trail system of Highland Park. History was made when a couple completed their trail tour on a tandem bicycle. Thank you Richard and Evelyn Glass for leading the trail hike. At 1:30pm, a crowd began to gather; sharing tales of the park present and past. Hamburgers and Hot Dogs were on the grill while Mike Rizk prepared a delicious low country boil of potatoes, shrimp, corn, sausage and other assorted vegetables. Party visitors brought dishes to share to make the picnic complete.

PTAG would like to thank first and foremost, John Read our PTAG Highland Park Steward. His generosity and passion for building trails made this all possible. John hosted this event, provided the venue, and the bulk of the food items. Thank you John for all you do representing PTAG and sharing your love of the outdoors with the community.

A big THANK YOU to all the Volunteers that made these trails a reality. Without your support; milestone celebrations like this would not occur.
