The Grayson County Public Trails Association is in search of volunteers and someone wjo has passion for the trails to step up to fill Anya Turpin's shoes when she leaves in December.

At the Public Trails Association of Grayson County's November meeting, the board and volunteers began saying goodbye to their chairwomen Anya Turpin.

Turpin will be moving to Georgia in December, and she wants to make sure that her Grayson County Trails project continues to serve Grayson County residents. The association is looking for someone who is passionate about the trails and Grayson County and is willing to spend time cleaning and fixing up the trails, in addition to organizing trail events for the county.

Leitchfield City Councilman and trail volunteer Kelly Stevenson said, "We need someone to take Anya's place that will carry on the vision she has."

Additionally, PTAGCKY is also looking for volunteers to help with trail work and to participate in events.

If you are interested in volunteering or the chairperson position, be sure to go to the next Trails meeting on Monday, Dec. 3 at 9 a.m. or contact them on Facebook at Public Trails Association of Grayson County.

In addition to discussing what comes next after Turpin leaves, the members and volunteers discussed the following:

*Treats on the Trail had at least 1,300 participants and 39 booth hosts. The only issue volunteers saw was that some of the booths had activities that held up the lines. Next year the members would like booth hosts to alert them if they will have an activity so that booths can be arranged accordingly. PTAGCKY also received $85 in donations from this event.

*The next Trail Work Day is scheduled for "National Take a Hike Day" on Nov. 17. Volunteers will clean up the newly fallen sticks and leaves and any trash they may see. The work day will take place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and volunteers will meet at the shed by the skate park at Taylor Fork Trail. Anyone interest in helping is welcome to join them.

* Kelly Stevenson and Tara Eubank spoke with the Leitchfield Police Department about the ongoing vandalism at Taylor Fork Trail. The LPD has agreed to install security cameras on the trails and will move them around as they see fit.

*Members discussed hosting a spot at Christmas in the park, which will take place Nov. 30 from 5-6 p.m. Volunteers will hand out hot cocoa and cookies. All of the Christmas decorations will stay up until Dec. 31.

*Heidi Arnold was named volunteer of the month for her dedication to the trails and her work at Treats on the Trail.
