    The Herb Monroe Community Park, nestled in the heart of downtown Paulding, stands as a cherished gathering place for families, professionals on lunch breaks, event organizers, food trucks, and the entire Paulding County Community. With its lush greenery, inviting spaces, and vibrant atmosphere, the park enriches the lives of all who visit.

    Maintaining this beloved community asset is a shared responsibility, and the Paulding Area Chamber of Commerce proudly oversees its care. As stewards of this green space, we are reaching out to our community to join us in maintaining its beauty.

    We are excited to announce an opportunity for individuals, churches, businesses, and organizations to get involved and make a tangible difference. By signing up for a one-week time slot, volunteers can contribute to the upkeep of the park, ensuring it remains a welcoming haven for all.

    Tasks will include simple yet impactful activities such as picking up litter, tending to flower beds, sweeping mulch off pavements, and other essential maintenance duties. Together, we can uphold the charm and cleanliness of Herb Monroe Community Park for generations to come.

    Erica Noggle, Executive Director of the Chamber, expresses enthusiasm about community involvement. "This initiative is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to play a role in preserving this beloved park. Whether you're an individual looking to give back, a church group seeking a meaningful activity, or a business interested in corporate social responsibility, your contribution matters."

    Nestled in the heart of Paulding County, the proposed Paulding County Trails Project isn't just about concrete and asphalt; it's about creating pathways to a safer, healthier, and more connected community.

    As we lace up our shoes and pedal our bikes, we're paving the way for something truly transformative. The Trails Project isn't just about getting from point A to point B; it's about fostering a sense of belonging and ensuring that everyone, regardless of age or ability, has access to the resources and experiences that make life fulfilling.

    "Nature has an incredible ability to heal and inspire us," said Anna Gurney, Education Specialist, Paulding Soil and Water Conservation District. "By investing in trail systems like the Paulding County Trails Project, we're not just building paths; we're providing opportunities for people to reconnect with the natural world, improving mental and physical well-being in the process."

    Imagine strolling down a path, the sun peeking through the branches, as you make your way to the Paulding County Hospital, Black Swamp Nature Center, or Lela McGuire Park. With every step, you're not just getting closer to your destination; you're also strengthening the bonds that tie our community together.

    But it's not just about convenience; it's about safety. With dedicated pathways for pedestrians, bicyclists, and wheelchair users, the project would reduce the risk of accidents and create a haven for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. And let's not forget about the environment. By reducing vehicular travel and promoting active lifestyles, we're not only improving our own health but also leaving behind a greener footprint for future generations to enjoy.

    "The proposed Paulding County Trails Project isn't just about concrete slabs and trail markers; it will be an investment in the safety, health, and connectedness of the community," said Erica Noggle, Executive Director, Paulding Area Chamber of Commerce. "It's about creating a space where everyone feels welcome and valued."

    So, let's lace up our shoes, hop on our bikes, and hit the trails. Together, we can build a brighter, healthier future for Paulding County.
