Local riding club “adopts” Moore Road

Published 10:00 pm Monday, August 7, 2017

Foothills Riding Club, your community resource for all things equine, has taken on a new project! The Club has adopted Moore Road in the Green Creek area of Polk County as part of the North Carolina Adopt-A-Highway campaign.
Hatsie Goodrich, our community outreach coordinator, explains, “We want the Adopt-A-Highway project to bring awareness to the existence of a riding club here in the foothills. She continues, “It was Sue Mullen’s inspiration (the project) and Sue did all the heavy lifting of putting the project together. I am the FRC community coordinator and I will be announcing a clean up date for Moore Road.”
We all love the beauty of our foothills and now FRC will be helping to keep our community litter free. Come on out and drive Moore Road and see for your self! Moore Road runs between Sandy Plains Road and John Shehan Road. While you are in that neck of the woods, you can take a quick swing by Tryon International Equestrian Center (minutes away) and see what all the excitement is about.
When the weather cools down a bit, watch for an announcement in your email and on the FRC website for a volunteer opportunity to walk Moore Road and help pick up trash. It’s easy and safe and no telling what you might find. FRC will provide gloves, bags and safety vests. Hatsie says, “All hands are welcome!”
