Connecting the church with the Danvers Rail Trail

Members and adult leaders of Boy Scout Troop 16 in Danvers have widened and improved the path leading from the back of the church parking lot to the new Danvers Rail Trail. On November 19, 2011, and then again on April 14, 2012, the troop spread wood chips, lined the path with felled logs, and installed a hand rail along a steep part of the path.

The project was planned, managed, and carried out by Troop 16 member Trevor Perry as his Eagle Scout project.

The rail trail is not only a recreational resource but also a transportation route. Depending on their proximity to the trail, church members may now ride to Sunday services by bicycle. The church is grateful for the troop’s hard work in turning this vision into reality.
