Members of the Elkin Valley Trails Association are inviting the community to an evening with former Sen. James Broyhill and Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail Superintendent Paul Carson.
The association will celebrate the role the trail and the Town of Elkin played in the Revolutionary War, and how the trail impacts local history, economic development and recreation today.
“Please join us at 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 17 at the Elkin Center at 1461 North Bridge Street in Elkin,” said association governing board Vice Chairperson Denise Lyon. “We will have the opportunity to hear both Senator Broyhill and Superintendent Carson speak about this gem in our growing network of trails. The event is open to the public and there is no charge. Please come a few minutes early to get a good seat.”
The EVTA Governing Board will be on hand after the talk to answer any questions about trail projects and to take suggestions and comments from the public, said officials at the association.
Senator James Broyhill is a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives and the United States Senate and led the effort in Congress that resulted in routes being designated a national historic trail. Paul Carson is employed by the National Park Service and is Superintendent of the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail.
This event is free to the public.
