Grant money was issued by Gov. Manchin at Charleston ceremony

Gov. Joe Manchin handed out nearly a million dollars in federal recreation funds Thursday, with the cash divided between 22 projects around the state.

A project requested by the Calhoun Commission was approved for the Upper West Fork Park.

A new walking trail at the park received $33,222, requiring a 20% match.

The grant was issued through the Recreational Trails program.

Calhoun Commission president Rick Sampson and Michelle Sears, representing the park, received the grant at a ceremony in Charleston.

A picnic pavilion and some exercise stations are also planned for the park.
