Mourning the Loss of Elaine Hammer

The GPTN family is mourning the loss of Elaine Hammer. The following quote from the Journal Star says it best - "She was a force of nature," said Susan Larson Rodenburg, SLR Communications president and Hammer's longtime friend. "Without Elaine, we wouldn't have 134 miles of trail throughout Lincoln and Lancaster County; Lincoln would be a very different place. When I tell the story of Lincoln’s trails system, it always starts with Elaine Hammer, 'the mother of Lincoln’s Trails System." GPTN exists because of Elaine and she will be greatly missed by us all. The Hammer family has asked that in lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the trails. Memorials can be sent to the Elaine Hammer Memorial at the Nebraska Trails Foundation to benefit the Great Plains Trails Network. Send checks made payable to NE Trails Foundation with “Elaine Hammer Memorial" in the memo to Nebraska Trails Foundation (NTF), 5935 S. 56th St, Suite A, Lincoln, NE 68516. Please click the Elaine Hammer Memorial Donation button above or below to make an online contribution through NTF. On the NTF site please select the Elaine Hammer Memorial for your donation.
