Congratulations to Henrietta O’Grady on receiving the Trail Tender Award from the N Y State Canal Corporation. The award is given annually to a volunteer recognizing the passion, effort and effectiveness (s)he has demonstrated in fulfilling the dream of a State-wide system of Canal Trails.
Canal Corporation Director Carmella Mantello presented the award during a meeting of the Halfmoon Town Board on February 3. It was a complete surprise to Henny.
We are all proud of the contribution Henny has made to trails and recreational facilities along the Mohawk Towpath Byway. Henny is Executive Secretary for the Mohawk Towpath Scenic Byway Coalition, Inc. She and husband, Harold, live on the Byway in Halfmoon and staunchly represent the Town on the Coalition’s Board of Directors.
