Danvers Rail Trail Launches Mileage Marker Program
Danvers residents and businesses came together on Jan. 7 to launch a new fundraising initiative for the town's Rail Trail.
On Saturday, Jan. 7, the Danvers Rail Trail Advisory Committee formally launched a new fundraising effort designed to improve and enhance the town's Rail Trail.
Mileage markers were installed along the length of the trail, and are being sponsored by groups, businesses or individuals and families, with all funds raised being dedicated to trail enhancements. An blue-and-white decal on each marker features the sponsor’s name, logo and/or dedication message.
Last summer, the Danvers Kiwanis were the first sponsors of the trail, and Mead Web Design and Computing donated $3,500 worth of web design services to date by creating and maintaining www.danversrailtrail.org. Mead also hosts a Facebook page for the trail.
Seven individuals and families have also stepped forward to sponsor a marker: the Rockett, Anderson, Cilley-Bouchard, Curtis and Lincicum families, Christine St. Hilaire, and the Leo Cidzik family.
