​    Currently the Perrysville Economic Development Board is working to establish trails in Weltmer Park, and to hold the 2018 Homestead Festival. We have received a grant for $74,000 through the Ashland County Commissioners from the Community Development Block Grant to pave trails in the Weltmer Park.  We are excited to have this opportunity to provide a handicap accessible trail through the woods at Weltmer Park.  Our trails will be similar to those at Freer Field in Ashland.  Trees are being removed and trails leveled out to get ready for the paving this spring.  We have received a grant from the Samaritan Hospital Foundation to also help with this project.  We will have a ribbon cutting ceremony once the Weltmer Trails Project is complete.  More details later...
