Tommy Thompson trestle re-opening party (2010)
Saturday, June 17, 2023
On this date in 2010 the community gathered to celebrate the grand-reopening of the Tommy Thompson Trail’s trestle, which had been severely damaged by an arsonist the previous October. This was the culmination of a massive effort to restore the well-loved trail: “Fix-It” buttons were worn by many, and a fundraising campaign led by Michele Pope raised more than $300,000 for repairs.
