Back in May, the Shoreline Greenway Trail marked its 10th annual meeting. Shortly thereafter, I visited the students at Mrs. Tobin's fourth grade class at Murphy school, for whom a decade is ancient history. They – and I – wanted to know just how the Shoreline Greenway Trail got its start.
In the past two weeks, the Shoreline Greenway Trail has marked a couple of exciting milestones. On Sept. 30, the first annual Run the Gauntlet, sponsored by Trailblazer, was held at Hammonasset State Park to benefit the trail. On Oct. 4, the trailhead at D. C. Moore School in East Haven opened up with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. It seems that 2012 is a big year for the trail, and I'm excited to learn about how the project began – and what they have in store for the future.
