On Friday, June 6, a special ceremony was held in Whalan to officially “give” the new Trail Town map to the City. “We want to thank Tri-County Electric for making this possible,” said Wes Harding, Whalan’s representative on the Trail Towns Committee. “Their generous donation of $2,600 provided new, metal, weather-resistant maps for all nine trail towns.”

The signs were produced in Casson by Images on Metal. Chris Kohn was the designer.

“Volunteers in Whalan worked hard, as well,” said Harding. “The map is located just off the trail, and new landscaping welcomes bikers coming through town. Many stop to take pictures at the sign.”

Ted Kjos, Vice President of Marketing/External Relations for Tri-County, spoke on behalf of Tri-County at the event. “We have a commitment to our local communities,” said Kjos. “We live, work, and raise our families here, too, and we want to do all we can to strengthen and support our members and hometowns. Tri-County was excited to help with this project and are pleased with these beautiful new maps.”
