Here is the suggested text for your message to them:

The Friends of the DRHT are trying to build a free, public, outdoor recreational interconnected infrastructure in KG that does not revolve around cars. The Friends of the DRHT have worked and waited and served the community for over 10 years to move the trail to be a Part of Caledon state park. Thanks for unanimously approving a resolution to support the sale of the DRHT to the U. S. Navy and the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation!
