Rotary Grant Boosts Paddle Antrim's Waterways Project
 
Gathering at the general area designated as the trailhead launch site for the new Chain Of Lakes Waterways Trail to celebrate ER Rotary Club's $1000 matching grant to Paddle Antrim are Rotarians from left, Gary Chenoweth, Lisa Worsley-Matthews, Camille Campbell, Paddle Antrim Executive Director Deana Jerdee, Rotarians Jim Sak and Dean Branson. "Thank you again for the generous support of the Paddle Antrim with the Challenge grant on Giving Tuesday, helping us to successfully raise the $1,000 match in that one day," said Jerdee. "Paddle Antrim will use the generous gift as we finalize the planning for the Chain of Lakes Water Trail development. This non-motorized water trail will provide over 80 miles of trails to be explored with 81 access sites along the 14 connected lakes and rivers. From the small lakes of the Upper Chain to the larger lakes like Elk Lake and Torch Lake, there is a paddling experience for all levels of paddlers."
