The Trails from Freeport (TFF) project is now $4,000 closer to building a safe path between Freeport and the Trout Run Trail, thanks to a recent event sponsored by Mabe's Pizza of Decorah.

On February 19, TFF supporters delivered Mabe's pizzas, with proceeds benefitting the TFF project.

"It was inspiring to see the wide community support for this project," said Jerry Weis, TFF Board member. "A huge thank-you to Steve and Connie White and the entire Mabe's crew for making this such a successful event."

The goal of the Trails from Freeport project is to develop a 1.5-mile paved path to eliminate pedestrian and cyclist traffic on County Highway A6W/Old Stage Road and connect Freeport safely to the Trout Run Trail. TFF has raised more than $90,000 toward the trail extension to date.

Donations to TFF can be sent to Northeast Iowa RC&D Trails From Freeport Fund, P.O. Box 125, Decorah, IA 52101.
