Local organization receives grant that will aid in trail building

On May 26, representatives of the Pathfinders of Perry County announced that they received a $25,000 grant from the Perry County Community Foundation. Benjamin Braman, of the Pathfinders of Perry County, said that Hazard Rental Pro Owner Doug Jones and Randy Coots, with Derby State Rentals, helped the organization qualify for additional discounts and keep the funds local. "Our brand new Kabota U17 mini excavator will greatly improve our ability to build more trails and outdoor experiences for the community," said Braman.
