Will there ever be an official in-person FredTrails+Community celebration (ribbon cutting) ceremony?
Yes, FredTrails hopes to invite vendors, sponsors, city officials, and the entire community to attend a live celebration of not only the completion of the Motts Loop Reservoir and Quarry signage but for all the great things you’ve helped us complete to date. Food, fun, exercise, entertainment! Obviously, we can’t do this during a pandemic. Stay tuned for more information in Spring 2021…
