City Receives Awards

Friday's (9/28) Hendersonville Star News, page 3A reports that Hendersonville received three awards from the Greater Nashville Regional Council on Sept 13'th.  One was for the implementation of the Bike/Ped Plan to include the greenway and another for the use of grants to improve its multi-modal transportation system (think Bike/Ped).  Several FOGBEE members participated in the writing of those plans.  The bottom-line for these awards are we CAN make a difference for getting involved in community work.  FOGBEES have also been central to the establishment of Bike Walk Tennessee, a 501c3 non-profit corporation to advocate statewide.  What is unfortunate is no FOGBEES are stepping up to replace these people as they retire from such work.
