August 6, 2014 (Independence, IA) – The Independence Community School District extends their appreciation to two recent donors to the American Trott
er Trail project, Bloom Manufacturing, Inc. and Lloyd & Phyllis Davis. Lloyd Davis and his wife Phyllis donated a bench, light and litter receptacle.
Bloom Manufacturing, represented by President Mark J. H. Collett and Vice President Deborah L. Collett, donated a bench, light and litter receptacle.
At this time, only three bench locations remain open for recognition. The funds donated to the American Trotter Trail Project are used to pay for the benches, lighting and litter receptacles along the trail. The District will be installing additional lights along the American Trotter Trail this summer using donated proceeds received to date. Upon donors claiming the final three bench locations, the remaining lights will be installed along the trail.
Making a donation to the American Trotter Trail is a distinct way to honor a loved one, recognize a graduating class (Class of XXXX), remember an achievement (XXXX State Champs), or publicize your business name to all who frequent the trail.
Community members have access to this new paved trail on part of the Independence Community School District’s 92 acres. The American Trotter Trail is in honor of the late C.W. Williams’ 1890’s horse racing publication. The trail is located on the site of the former kite-shaped horse racing track that existed in the late 1880’s and connects all three school buildings, creating a unified campus.
