ATV CLUB CONTRIBUTES BACK TO TRAILS & COMMUNITY
Pembroke, ON: NOVEMBER 22, 2018 10:30 am, Renfrew County ATV Club (RCATV) will be showing its true colours as a trails and community building organization. RCATV volunteers will be on the trails behind Algonquin College to receive a $1000 grant from the Jason Blaine Charitable Fund towards their 2019 Operation Tire Save. They will also be issuing the proceeds of their August 2018 Ride for Carl Larocque to the Grind Pembroke and Champlain Discovery School breakfast program.
Operation Tire Save will coordinate and encourage all trail users to form teams stretched across the trail system to remove metal debris from the former rail bed. This trail is a significant economic tourism driver bringing tourism to local businesses and moving recreational riders throughout the county. Removing the metal debris, as an extended community of trail users, will encourage returning trail tourism and ensure safe maximum recreational potential for our resident users, both motorized and non-motorized.
“This community-focused event will help motorized riders to build trust with riders and residents. Trail users want to be respectful of both the land and the community and this event allows us to do our part, as trail users, to maintain the trail and keep it safe. This will engage all ages, families, and youth in volunteerism as community of trail enthusiasts.” Teresa Hebb, RCATV President
