Aluminum Trail Signs - March 2014
Several groups of energetic volunteers performed a blitz on 3 miles of the Vandalia Trail
March 29-31 installing 35 wooden sign posts and 63 aluminum signs from Amo to Coatesville.
The 11 volunteers came from Amo, from near Coatesville and Clayton,
and from farther away in Hendricks and Marion counties. They included horseback
riders, cyclists, dog walkers, and hikers, and ranged from a local resident who walks
the trail twice a day to a couple of first time visitors. Many thanks to
VISIT HENDRICKS COUNTY
for the primary funding of this project and to the Greenways Foundation for the additional
Thanks also to the volunteer installers Darrell, Riley, Amy, Tim, Greg, Mike, Mike, Karen, Linda, Steve, and Roxanne.
Combined with the 33 signs installed over the previous month and the last few installed in
early April, this 100+ sign upgrade makes the trail more inviting to visitors and more aesthetic to local residents,
plus it publicizes the trail's presence much more effectively to passers-by.
