Dates are subject to change so watch for updates.   Right now, we have approximately 1.5 miles of trail left to complete on the Laurel Loop extension.  bOb hopes to have the machine work completed by the end of June so it will be up to the volunteers to hand finish the trail so it can be opened for riding!!  There is still a permit required for the creek crossing which we hope to have in hand soon.

Thanks again to all the volunteers who have come out in the past.  We can't do it without you.

We are still posting pictures of the progress of the Downtown Statesville Streetscape Project from the front of our store to our Facebook page so take a look and like the page or comment on a picture and receive a FFB waterbottle on your next visit to the store. Stop in and see us with our convenient parking behind the store.
