September 30, 2012: Governor Tomblin designated September 29, 2012 as a Day of Service. The Shinnston Development Authority registered their “Day of Service” but did not do it alone. The Kiwanis Club, Key Club of Lincoln High joined several Council members, City workers and Administrative Staff,  a couple representing Bridgeport Rotary, and Emily, the daughter of a Key Club advisor, to provide the labor force. Shinnston Garden Club, Roger Nuzum, and Lee Reger Builds provided materials or equipment. Together the Sue Ann Miller Trailhead of the West Fork River Rail-Trail was cleaned up and spruced up. Trash was picked up, gravel spread, bushes trimmed, weeds pulled, plants and Spring bulbs planted (watch for the daffodils this Spring), picnic tables, picnic shelter, and information kiosk painted….

We will let the photos tell the Story:
