Top 18 of '18 Story 3:KeWash Trailhead Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

Keota Unlimted member, Melinda Eakins introduces fellow committee member, Denny Lyle during her brief presentation of the Trailhead's history. 

The celebration for the KeWash Trailhead on September 9, 2018 marked the end of a long journey for the folks from Keota Unlimited who have been working for almost 4 years to bring this project to completion.

         The KeWash Trail, a hiking and bike trail which extends from Keota, into West Chester, and on to Washington, came to a rather dead stop in Keota, between Vision Ag and Farmer’s Coop. Keota Unlimited had the idea to create a trailhead near the site for folks to use as a starting point or resting point along the trail.

         With the project complete, the KU members decided to celebrate with a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony last Sunday. The ceremony was an invitation event. Those invited included the representatives of the Washington County Riverboat Foundation and REAP, and those private citizens who have contributed to the project.
