IT'S OFFICIAL -- THE BYRON LAPP MEMORIAL TRAIL

We now have our first officially named trail in the Montezuma Heritage Park!  On Memorial Day we had a wonderful turnout to dedicate the Byron Lapp Memorial Trail. It was a day of honoring and celebration that brought to life what our town stands for:  coming together in community -- and returning to the sense of place that has stood the test of time.  Dominick Recckio, Byron's great-grandson, summed up what the day was all about when he spoke on behalf of his family saying  "how honored they were to have the first trail named in honor of his great-grandfather. He would be very humbled, and very proud."

The look of smiling faces says it all!
