Members of the Bellefontaine Moose Lodge 2563 and the Women of the Moose presented city officials with two checks Wednesday for $500 each for the extension of the recreational Simon Kenton Trail from Urbana into Bellefontaine, and one for $1,060 to buy two new ballistic vests for city police officers.

“We’re looking forward to putting the path in to Bellefontaine and the vests are a good safety investment for the city,” said Mayor Adam Brannon, who is also a member of the bike path steering group.

“We’re just glad we could help you all out,” Moose Lodge Governor Cory Ames said, noting that the WOM raised $500 toward the bike path through their Summerfest event.
