CT NEMBA is awarded a $10,000 Grant from REI

Katie Ulvin (L) of REI awards CT NEMBA Chapter President Mark Lurie the grant check
On Saturday, the Connecticut Chapter of New England Mountain Bike Association was given a check for $10,000 by REI (Norwalk).

The grant is for two projects (1) build a new trail at Collis P Huntington State Park and (2) expand our Trail Ambassador and Trail Maintenance program in the Hartford Area.

We will be forming a partnership with REI in all of our Trail Maintenance and Trail Ambassador activities in the future and can't wait to work with them in the future on new trail projects such as the one at Collis P Huntington State Park and else where.
