Seventeen years ago, Paul and Ann Clinton placed an ad in the Oldham Era asking if anyone in the community would be interested in preserving green space. More than 70 people showed up at the first meeting forming Greenways for Oldham County.
Fast forward to last week, when Greenways celebrated the ribbon cutting of the 2.5-mile trail-paving project at Wendell Moore Park.
“We take a lot of pride in this (project),” said Judy Hall, a Greenways board member. “We are a tiny organization. It was a big undertaking for us.”
