Trails Head Chapter Launches New Website
We are pleased to announce that our Trails Head Chapter has just launched its new website. Everything you ever wanted to know about historic trails in Kansas City can be found here. It is extensive and comprehensive, containing video, diaries (compiled by chapter member Mary Conrad), letters, memoirs, photos, trail markers, a very dense chapter history section (400 pages of info written by OCTA Past President Ross Marshall), and interactive trail maps. To coincide with the launch of the new website, the City of Independence, Missouri announced yesterday morning that it had just won a $1 million grant to promote, among other things, walking history tours in the city. The city has already agreed to promote the website, and especially the interactive map that can serve as the basis of a very in-depth walking tour, as part of their marketing outreach.
A special thank you to our Chapter (and this was a true team effort; there are too many people to list here) and especially Gina Sifers and her team at Bella Media for creating such an attractive and comprehensive website.
