The Daily Globe - Serving Gogebic, Iron and Ontonagon Counties

Trail fundraiser scheduled Saturday


April 19, 2018


Ironwood — While it may not seem like it, warmer weather will be here soon and activity will pick up on the local segment of the Iron Belle Trail. In preparation of the upcoming season, the Friends of the Iron Belle Trail will be holding a fundraising dinner Saturday.

The event will run from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Elk and Hound Restaurant.

The menu will feature a mix of barbecue, potato salad, baked beans, chips and dessert; according to Sam Davey, one of the fundraiser’s organizers.

“We’re asking for a $10 donation — if you put $5 in fine; if you put $20 in, better yet,” Davey said.

There will also be a 50/50 drawing and a variety of items and gift cards to be raffled off.

The money raised at the event will go toward improvements for the trail, which runs from the Michigan-Wisconsin border in Ironwood to downtown Bessemer, especially those designed to improve trail safety.

“It is safe now, we’re just always trying to improve on it and make things better,” Davey said. “You’ve always got to keep moving forward.”
