Jennie Barker Elementary School will hold a ribbon cutting on Friday, April 21st at 6:15 p.m. for the quarter mile, eight-foot wide asphalt trail that was recently completed at the school. The school has worked with a number of organizations and held events to raise funds for the trail that will provide a comfortable training area for the school’s running club and will also be accessible to area residents.
The school will hold a Spring Carnival and a One-mile Fun Run during the event to celebrate the new trail. The carnival will take place at the school from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. Wristbands will be $10 for unlimited games and will be available for purchase the evening of the carnival. Concessions will also be available during the event.
There was generous financial support from the Sunflower Foundation, Western Kansas Community Foundation and Klotz Sand and Asphalt for the construction of the trail at the school.
