A project to extend the Simon Kenton Trail through West Liberty and into Bellefontaine eclipsed $230,000 in pledges and donations following a recent contribution.
Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio recently donated $5,000 to Simon Kenton Pathfinders for its ongoing efforts to extend the bike trail 15.8 miles, connecting Urbana and Bellefontaine.
“The trail extension fits well within Vectren’s key areas of focus and it is our pleasure to offer our continued support to the Village of West Liberty and City of Bellefontaine,” said Colleen Ryan, president of Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio.
Another $58,000 needs to be raised in order to complete the project. Overall, $232,000 has been raised so far.
Donations or pledges can be sent to the Simon Kenton Pathfinders, P.O. Box 91, Urbana, OH 43078.
