The Montpelier Area Mountain Bike Association (MAMBA) is working hard to raise money and assemble a boardwalk and bridge as part of the Sparrow Farm Trail. The Trail is used by runners and bicyclists and eventually connects in one direction to the Montpelier Rec Field and the North Branch Nature Center.
Already MAMBA has raised half of the needed $4,500 to complete work on the boardwalk and bridge. Specifically MAMBA is seeking to raise $1,500 from community members no later than Saturday, October 15. For further information about donating to the bridge and boardwalk project, please go online to https://www.gofundme.com/2uf94ufg.
MAMBA is seeking volunteer help to begin assembling the boardwalk and pre-cutting the decking. This work is currently going forward right now in the evening at MAMBA board member Dan Voisin’s house. All of this evening preliminary work points to “Assembly Day” on Saturday, October 15.
On October 15, volunteers are asked to meet at the top of Sparrow Farm Hill. MAMBA will have some tools on hand but asks volunteers to bring a cordless drill or impact driver. Also needed are work gloves, wheelbarrows, pry bars, hammers, shovels and buckets. All are welcome. The construction project is to end at 12 noon and will be followed by a group trail ride. For further information, please make email contact with Voisin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
