Fort Mountain Trailwinders
On Thursday, July 16th the Fort Mountain
Trailwinders installed their first donated bridge on the multi-use
recreational trail system in Epsom. Within minutes of the ribbon-cutting
ceremony, a biker rode through the new bridge.
The 16 foot bridge,
donated by Harber Construction, was placed over a wet spot on the multi-use
recreational trails behind the Epsom Bible Church on Black Hall Road in
Epsom. The bridge was built by members of the Fort Mountain Trailwinders,
Epsom’s snowmobile club.
The ceremony honoring Joe and Lori Harnois of
Harber Construction for their generous donation was attended by members of
the snowmobile club as well as representatives of the church. Epsom Bible
Church, who owns the land where the bridge was placed, has been a supportive
landowner for many years.
A plaque has been attached to the bridge as as
reminder to all hikers, bikers, horseback riders and snowmobilers that local
businesses such as Harber Construction support the community through their
sponsorship of recreational activities.
