Another late entry, but forgive me, things have been extraordinarily robust. We are doing daily, except for Sunday, fundraising over at City Market for our Emergency Needs Fund. We raise about half of the $25,000 we need to make it through one year. We have a wonderful group of volunteers who have stepped up to volunteer with us. We made the shifts one - one and a half hours so that is much more tolerable than the two hour shifts we have had in the past. And we are over halfway to reaching our goal with this effort. City Market has been amazing.
This is my favorite time of the year in certain respects. Main Street is often empty, the air is clean and fresh, the light is off-the-charts gorgeous, and the community reemerges or is just easier to see as the tourism slows way down. This is the community I moved to and fell in love with 19 years ago. And one that is sadly disappearing.
Many calls for help come in this time of year. I have had over 15 calls already this month. Some of which are heartbreaking. We are honored to be able to assist when we can and to help be a turning point for people when they are really down on their luck.
Trail work and maintenance continues in Mill Creek Canyon. This is the time to get things ready for the busy times. An ounce of protection.......
We would love to have you join us for a cleanup in the washes in the Potato Salad Hill area, or for walk along the parkway in town to look for homeless camps and to enjoy this gem right in city limits. Give us a call!
In the meantime, enjoy this wonderful photo from a friend.
Work done to erase graffiti on rocks in Mill Creek. Thanks Sue Baril!
