As the excitement about the Ellicottville – Great Valley Recreation Trail building project grows, so does the generosity of those wishing to support it. This week, the trail committee received another gift that will propel the trail building project into reality.

Darlene and Travis Baugh of Great Valley, N.Y., and Fort Worth, Texas, have made a very generous $5,000 donation toward the construction of the Ellicottville–Great Valley Recreation Trail.

“We just love this area. We love Ellicottville and Great Valley so much, and just want to be a big part of this wonderful project,” said Darlene, who grew up in Bradford, Pa. The Baughs have many friends here and are active members of the community.
