Thank you again to everyone who joined us for the Holiday Lights on the Trail event last night!  We had approximately 250 attendees – one of our largest and most successful events to date.  Here are a few pictures from the event.  More are posted on our Facebook page and on our Twitter feed (@NorthavenTrail).

A special thank to you to all of our corporate sponsors (Hollywood Feed, Corner Bakery, Celebrity Bakery, Simply Fit Meals, Starbucks, and Top Pot Doughnuts), as well as to our neighborhood donors (the Roger Andres Family, Zoe and David Bonnette, Lisa and Dr. Jeff Genecov, Ms. Launa Huffines, Lee Kleinman and Dr. Lisa Umholtz, Jamie and Mark Shrayber, Dr. Arlene Sachs, and Drs. Judy and Stacy Wood).  Thanks to our neighborhood donors, Ruthie’s Rolling Food truck was able to serve delicious food at no charge to our attendees!

Many of you asked about future sponsorship opportunities, and we definitely have such opportunities available.  These include event (full and partial) sponsors, as well as trail amenities (such as water fountains, dog waste stations, and more).  Many of these opportunities are posted to our website now, and we’ll also be updating soon to include event sponsorships in addition to our “on the trail” sponsorship opportunities already available.

Email info@northaventrail.org if you want to help out as a volunteer, make a donation, or just have a general question about the trail. And please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get all of the latest trail news.

Stay tuned for our next event, It’s My Park Day, coming up in the spring!  Hope to see you on the trail soon.
