New Trails at Spencer-Penn Centre

Shown above are (L-R) Nelda Purcell, grant writer for Spencer-Penn Centre (SPC); April Haynes of Martinsville Area Community Foundation; Jim Purcell, President of SPC and Mary Jordan, Executive Director of SPC.

Seniors and families will soon have a new place to walk in the Spencer Area of Henry County.
Spencer-Penn Centre, located in the Southwest corner of Henry County has been diligently working on developing mulit-use trails along their property. Thanks to a $3,500 grant from the Martinsville Area Community Foundation (MACF), phase I of the project is underway. Phase I consists of a gravel lined walking track around the ball field. Phase II will be a series of natural surface trails in the woods and connect to the gravel track. Jimmie and Cevera Stone have graciously made a $4000 donation for the Spencer Penn Trails to match MACFs investment.
If you would like to donate to this project or volunteer, please contact Mary Jordan at 276-957-5757.
Once completed this network of trails will be the first leg of the Mayo River Trail System in partnership with the Dan River Basin Association. For more information on the Smith River Trail System, Mayo River Trail System, and our new Adopt-a-Trail Program, contact Jennifer Doss at 276-634-2545.
