Thanks for helping make our RRVT, an "Iowa Great Place," even greater!

A highlight of the 8th annual banquet of the Raccoon River Valley Trail Association was the presentation of this $200,000 ceremonial check by Chris Kramer (left), deputy director of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, to Jim Miller and Cindy Jensen, members of the RRVT Association's board of directors. The grant came with the designation of the trail as another of "Iowa's Great Places" and will help fund a major public art installation at the gateway trailhead in Waukee. (Photo by Randy Jensen)
