The Boone Greenway now connects to the Paul H. Broyhill Wellness Center.

The 850-foot connector that runs from the Wellness Center to the Greenway at State Farm Road, opened with a celebratory ribbon cutting on August 13th.

The Watauga Democrat reports that attending the ribbon cutting ceremony were Paul H. Broyhill, Richard Sparks, Karen Broyhill, Boone Town Manager John Ward, Appalachian Regional Healthcare System President and CEO Chuck Mantooth, Senator Deanna Ballard and Representative Jonathan Jordan.

According to the report, Ballard and Jordan helped secure $100,000 in funding for the project, which ended up costing only $68,000.
