Riverwalk Plans Continue
The Manchester Riverwalk Association plans to continue work over the winter in developing a course of action for future implementation. David Raphael of Landworks in Middlebury and volunteers will plan for the first section of the trail, thanks to a resource grant from the National Park Service. The Committee has formed a 501(c)3 organization to receive tax-deductible contributions. The goal is to raise $5,000 by December 31. Two matching grants launch the campaign: Right Track Foundation will provide a matching gift of $2,500. Funds need to be matched dollar for dollar, to be used on funding the Riverwalk proposal; and Shari Siegel will donate $10 for every donation of $25 or more until December 21, up to a maximum of $500. Donations may be sent to our new address: Manchester Riverwalk Association, Inc., P.O. Box 795, Manchester Center, Vt., 05255.
