New group wants to ease funding issues at Strouds Run
(2007-06-04)
(WOUB) - Strouds Run State Park has been dealing with funding issues, and now a new group wants to help ease the problem.

Conditions at the park have deteriorated and that's prompted the non-profit Friends of Strouds Run to hold a Poker Run at the Park.

The weekend event raised nearly 550 dollars.

About 40 people participated, biking, kayaking and horse riding in the park.

Athens County Visitors Bureau Marketing Coordinator Gina Geremia says the money will be used for various improvement projects that will still need approval from the state.

Those projects include anything from path maintenance to bridge construction at the State Park.
