(Elk Horn) The Little Mermaid Trail Project is one of 12-finalist for a $1,000 IMT-Insurance project grant. Jill Madsen, chairman of the project is encouraging people to go to the IMT Group on Face book and click like on the Little Mermaid Trail Project to help increase their chances for a $1,000 donation.
Madsen says the bicycle and walking trail project would connect Elk Horn and Kimballton and provide healthy activities for people in the community especially for those that enjoy bike riding.
“We have children that live in Kimballton that do a lot of events in Elk Horn with the school, and swimming pool,” stated Madsen. “The ball fields are heavily used in Kimballton and it would be nice for Elk Horn students and families to access those facilities via the trail also.”
Madsen says future plans along the route include; fitness stands, Frisbee golf, and art for people that enjoy that.
The Little Mermaid Trail Project includes several phases, and is expected to take several years to complete and donations are still being taken for the $1-million project.
