*** The "Pinehurst Project" -
With the abundant early snow fall and some great media publicity, the sledding interest at the renovated Pinehurst Park has been phenomenal. It's very rewarding to see the great public response. It's obvious now that this project was long over due. Corporate sponsorships continue to build so there is every reason to believe that Phase-2 plans will become a reality next summer. If you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, you need to. Red Eye members volunteer efforts and financial contributions have been greatly appreciated. Project fund raising is on going, and donation site links can be accessed through their website at http://pinehurstpark.org/ . You can also follow the project's progress on their Facebook page.
