A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Sept. 9 for a new paved pathway at South Amherst Community Park. The paved walking path and hydration station was made possible by receiving a grant from the Lorain County General Health District. The village park board thanked mayor David Leshinski and councilman Jed Willis for support. A Live Healthy Lorain County United We Sweat FitWalk will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 18 at the trail. All ages are invited to the free event, which will feature chances to win prizes.
