Trails 10th Anniversary Celebrated
By RODGER HANNA

The Tweed News

The Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance and the Trans Canada Trail Foundation unveiled another panel to the pavilion in Tweed. The Trail
Pavilion is located at the corner of River and McGamon Streets. The unveiling of the panel coincides with the 10th anniversary celebration
of the opening of the trail system.

Approximately 75 people joined the ceremonies at the pavilion on December 17 to see their names on the plaque as well as the accomplishments over the past 10 years. There are 200 names on a plaque with 9 total plaques now on one side of the pavilion. One of the
new plaques depicts images from 10 years of trail production.


The Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance (EOTA) was formed in 1997 and incorporated in 1999. The trail was formed into a multi-use trail with
EOTA managing. At present they manage 700 kms. of trails. When people purchase a spot on the plaque, a small portion goes back to the EOTA. Every two years the EOTA introduces a new plaque.
The pavilion opened on October 30, 1999, just in time for the Trans Canada Trail celebrations in 2000.

At the unveiling of the plaque, local dignitaries were present to commemorate the event. Daryl Kramp, MP Prince Edward-Hastings, explained how he has first-hand knowledge of the trail as his family business is located on a trail network in Madoc. ?I have seen every kind of transportation on the trail,? said Kramp, referring to snowmobiles, ATVs, horses and hiking. ?It is wonderful to see what we are as a country. People come from Ottawa and Toronto, and say how wonderful the trail is in the countryside.? said Kramp. He also
commented how people can use the trail as a means to get fit and is pleased to see that people had the foresight.


Dan Andrews, General Manager, Trans Canada Trail Ontario, noted that the pavilion in Tweed was one of the first in Ontario. ?The pavilion is
something to be proud of,? added Andrews. He thanked those in attendance for their contributions to the Trans Canada Trail and noted that the money goes towards funding of new sections such as Hastings to Campbellford. There is now a continuous link from Sharbot Lake to Hastings. ?Enjoy the trail that you have been able to sponsor,? said Andrews.


Cindy Cassidy, General Manager, Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance, explained that the trail is a year round multi-use trail that officially opened in December 1995. To date, the EOTA has raised $2,450,000 for the trail networks. The EOTA has a commitment to trail maintenance. Cassidy also wanted to thank the government for their support of the trails. The trails link communities together and with that, an enjoyable time on the trails wherever they take you.
