Hello Coon Prairie Trail friends and supporters,

        Back in 2008, the community spoke loudly in support of a multi-use paved trail between Westby and Viroqua. The trail we now know as the Coon Prairie Trail. This trail will be an asset to both our small towns and provide hours of outdoor fun for families and all recreational users. In addition to promoting healthy activities, this trail will be another draw to bring people to this beautiful area, and that in turn, will help our local businesses and our local economy.
        To ensure that the construction of the trail becomes a reality, Vernon Trails and Dr. Paul Grenier pledged $10,000.00 toward the construction, and another $1000.00 annually to maintain the trail. We are now asking for your support in meeting our financial obligation. If you would like to be a part of making this dream a reality, please make your tax free donations to Vernon Trails “Friends of the Trail” Fund.

       Important points:
  • All donations are tax-deductable. Please make checks payable to Vernon Trails. On the checks memo line, please have the donors write “Friends of the Trail donation”.
  • All donations over $500.00, $1,000.00 and $5,000.00 will be listed accordingly as major sponsors at the wayside park between Westby and Viroqua. Great Publicity for our local businesses! All other donors will be recognized in the newspaper.  
Please have checks made to Vernon Trails by March 7, 2011
Call Dr. Paul Grenier at 608-606-2600 or contact Alycann Taylor at 608-637-2072
Thank you in advance for your support of this worthy cause!
