Thanks to the support from the Fauquier community, we were able to raise over $2,000 for the trail last Wednesday!

We wanted to thank everyone who came out to Chipotle last Wednesday in support of the Warrenton Branch Greenway Trail! The line was out the door and many people waited a long time to get their food, but it was a great success.

Due to overwhelming support from the Fauquier community, the Warrenton Chipotle was able to donate $1,027.82 (fifty percent of the proceeds for the night) and that amount was matched by a PEC supporter.

Public and financial support from our local community will go a long way to help complete the trail within the next few years. Together with our partners, the Fauquier Trails Coalition and Fauquier County Parks and Recreation, we will continue to look for additional opportunities to raise funds to reach our pledged goal of $30,000.

This money, along with donations from the Fauquier Trails Coalition and VDOT, will be used to acquire land to allow the existing Greenway to double in size, creating a linear park that will be even more accessible to the community. This expansion will link the Greenway to an already established trail that connects Lord Fairfax Community College to the Fauquier Education Farm on Meetze Road, totaling approximately 4.5 miles of trails.

Happy trails,
