APD Supports Mascoma River Greenway with $20,000 Gift


Earlier this year, Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital (APD) completed a pledge it made in 2014 to commit $20,000 to the Upper Valley Trails Alliance in support of the Mascoma River Greenway.

The Mascoma River Greenway will be a four-mile, multi-use separated pathway starting from the current terminus of the Northern Rail Trail at Spencer Street in downtown Lebanon, New Hampshire, to West Lebanon’s Rt. 12-A and Seminary Hill, extending the Northern Rail Trail from its beginning in southern New Hampshire. It will be the core transportation corridor for bikes and pedestrians through the heart of Lebanon and West Lebanon.

The path of the Mascoma River Greenway also passes by the APD campus, and there are plans underway to connect the path to an existing APD parking lot.

“The health of the community will be enhanced with the completion of the Mascoma River Greenway,” said Peter Glenshaw, Associate Vice President of External Affairs. “We are honored to be able to support this important community project, and look forward to be an active partner once it is operational,” he said.

Melanie Moore, who previously oversaw development and community relations at the hospital, led the effort to secure APD’s commitment to the project. She remains actively involved in Mascoma River Greenway project as a member of the Campaign Steering Committee.
