Thank you to the 100+ donors who helped us reach our recent fundraising goal and $10,000 matching challenge! We are fortunate to have support from beyond Hamilton-Wenham and Ipswich, including Topsfield, Beverly, Boxford, Manchester, Middleton, Essex, Gloucester, Lynn, Newburyport.
Thank you also to Institute for Savings, Brotchie Capital Management, and CRAFT Sportswear.
With your help we:
- purchased this utility snowmobile and groomer shown in the video above
- secured 2 insurance policies for the equipment and liability
- are creating trail signs and maps (currently in production)
Are we done? No!
Our next phase of work will focus on trail accessibility and maintenance. Several bridges need modification or temporary ramps to allow the groomer to cross them, several road crossings are unsafe, and we are still pursuing land access on a few key connections for the trail network. We are pursuing grant funds and corporate sponsors to support this work, and the annual costs of insurance, maintenance, etc.
