SJAM Winter Trail Grooming Funding

I just came across a tweet from @SJAMWinterTrail mentioning their new web site http://www.wintertrail.ca/ with information about the Sir John A. Macdonald parkway riverside multi-use pathway trail winter snow grooming project and a request for donations. There’s also a related crowd funding site at https://fundrazr.com/SJAM.Winter.Trail, which makes nice use of the trail map as a progress indicator.

The Winter Trail web site is nicely done; besides a crisp concise look it has good coverage of the topic and related questions. If you hunt around the Internet, you can find a video about the trail, which includes our local neighbour Dennis, at https://twitter.com/SJAMWinterTrail/media or on YouTube:

I definitely appreciate the easier walking of a groomed trail in winter, particularly after an ice storm makes the uneven foot pounded snow path treacherous or a heavy snow confuses the solid walking path with soft trails left by skiers. Judging by the very popular test last winter, the skiers enjoy it too!

    Just under $200 to reach our $17,500 goal and then its the home stretch! We are planning on some exciting partnership activities with the The Canadian War Museum and the SJAM Winter Trail is the perfect way to get there including their onsite licensed cafe! Please help us finish by sharing this with your friends and family. We’re almost there!
