To celebrate the FLATS Phase One Groundbreaking the Forest Lake Area Trail System has set Thursday, October 3 as the deadline for donorsâ€™ names to be added to a plaque that will be placed at the trail head in Thousand Hills State Park.
FLATS has set a goal of raising an additional $12,500 by this date. These funds will support the design and construction of the next two phases of the project.
This permanent plaque will thank residents, businesses, and others who saw the promise of this project for Kirksville and Adair County and helped to make this project a reality before the first shovelful of dirt was turned.
Individuals, businesses with fewer than five employees, and non-profit organizations that have donated $500 or more by Thursday, October 3, and larger businesses that have donated $1000 or more, will all be recognized on this plaque.
Including grants, cash donations, and in-kind donations, FLATS has raised over $275,000.

100% of all donations to FLATS support the construction, promotion, planning, and maintenance of trails in AdairCounty. The Kirksville Rotary Charitable Fund is the 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor of the Forest Lake Area Trail System. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
