Adventure & Tech: History & Importance of the Gandy Dancer State Bicycle Trail



YOU'RE INVITED:

Join us Thursday, March 26th at 6 p.m. for the fourth, and very special, installment of our Adventure and Tech Social Series! Our feature presenter this week is Polk County Board Chairman, William F. Johnson IV, who will share the history and value of the Gandy Dancer State Bicycle Trail.

William will also address the potential threats posed to the trail at present time, as well as in previous years. This event is intended to be a positive experience, with respectfully shared information and opinions. As supporters of continued trail access for silent sports, we want to act as ambassadors that educate others in the community regarding the intended use and what a great asset the trail is to our region, and encourage continued non-motorized use of the trail. 
 
Following William's presentation, Amy Middleton will discuss her exciting project that aims to connect the Gandy Dancer and Stower Seven Lakes Trails. Amy is a member of the Town of Osceola Planning Commission and has championed silent sports; including them in planning documents and budget efforts.  

Complimentary beverages will be served, along with ample time for socializing between presentations!
