A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held in side the Veterans Memorial Park on Wednesday, August 1 at 5:30 p.m. to commemorate the completion of a non-motorized trail which connects the Village of Shepherd with Mount Pleasant. This section of trail is the latest completed as a part of a network of walking trails which will eventually extend across Gratiot, Clare, and Isabella Counties. The project is being overseen by the Mid Michigan Community Pathways.
The Friends of Mid-Michigan Community Pathways will also be hosting a 5K run/walk along the new trail. The 5K run/walk will start at 6:30 p.m. Registration for this event is $5 per person, but there is no cost to entry for the first 100 registrants.
