Perry City Administrator, Sven Peterson, will ride a bull to raise money for the Raccoon River Valley Trail to High Trestle connector trail on Friday, Sept. 8, at 7 p.m. at the Dallas County Fairgrounds. Trail Connector Pledges will be taken per second of the ride, or as a set dollar amount.

Funds will go to the Dallas County Conservation Foundation to support the 9-mile “connector” trail between Perry and Woodward that links the High Trestle Trail and the Raccoon River Valley Trail. Pledge forms will be available at Perry City Hall and online at
