PATRICK COUNTY, VA
To promote tourism and healthy lifestyles, the Patrick County Trail HANDS was developed by a team including Jim Allen, Terri Alt, Norma Bozenmayer, Mitch Sheppard, Beth Witt, Sarah Wray, Sybil Slate and Grace Helms. HANDS stands for Heritage, Art, Nature, Dreams and Stories, which the team plans to share about different communities while showcasing hiking trails in Patrick County. A giant cement hand, decorated by a local artist will be installed at five featured trails in different communities within Patrick County. The hands are being decorated by Nancy Clark, Grace Helms, Pepper Martin, Sarah Reyburn, and Joyce Wray. The Trail HANDS team is also creating a printed map of the hiking trails and assisting the Patrick County Tourism office with updating an on-line map of trails.
