Beat 43 at Rails 2 Trails AGM

43 people attended last year's AGM, society president Rob McIntyre hopes to see more than that Tuesday at Heritage Inn, Cranbrook

Rails 2 Trails is a shared amenity between Kimberley, Cranbrook and the RDEK which is extremely well-used.

And with the number of people who cycle, run, walk and roller blade on the trail, R2T Society President Rob McIntyre is hopeful he will see a good turn out at the Annual General Meeting this Tuesday, May 12 at 7 p.m. the Heritage Inn, Cranbrook.

“We had a great group at the AGM in Kimberley last year,” McIntyre said. “43 people came out and we thought that was fantastic. We’re hoping to get more than that on Tuesday. We’d like to beat 43 this year.”

A volunteer board of directors from the Kimberley / Cranbrook / Wycliffe area manages the NorthStar Rails 2 Trails. The board’s mandate covers three areas of trail management: seasonal maintenance, grant/operational fund sourcing and trail promotion. The board works closely with cities of Cranbrook and Kimberley and the Regional District of East Kootenay to tackle large-scale and long-term trail repairs.

If you’d like to have some say in trail management or just give a little back if you enjoy using Rails2Trails, attend the AGM on Tuesday.
