One of the pedestrian bridges along the Lehigh Portland Trails complex south of Iola has been dubbed Fon-Rie Bridge, in recognition of long-time volunteers Dave Fontaine and Dave Riebel, two of the leading workers who helped develop and build the complex. The sign was created and installed by Thrive Allen County intern Allie Utley and her father, Curtis, owner of Utleys Auto Body, Iola. PHOTO COURTESY OF THRIVE ALLEN COUNTY
