Harbor Country Rotary's 10 Trail Challenge
Harbor Country Rotary partnered with Chikaming Open Lands to offer the community an opportunity to get outdoors, enjoy some beautiful areas and learn about these two wonderful organizations located in Harbor Country. Pictured, from left, are Rotarians David McNabb and Tom Flint, also shown is Jen Thompson, marketing director for Chikaming Open Lands. They offer a 10 trail challenge during the month of July.  Participants earn prizes for 3, 5 or 10 trails completed. There is a strong social media component as participants take selfies in special frames to document their accomplishments and send them via Intragram. This year 205 registered participants gobbled up 95 prizes.  They are interested to add more trail options in St. Joe Benton Harbor.  For more infomation click here.
