sample letters:


I support the Troy Snowmobile Club in it’s Recreational Trails Grant application for groomer maintenance & operation.


The groomer maintenance & operation will provide for additional grooming of our approved routes. The current funding from the snowmobile grant restricts the number of times that we can groom, having a Recreational Trails Grant will allow for additional grooming, keeping our routes safer and more user friendly.




You may also write additional comments that you feel will help in our grant application.
