Hiking out of town; our own Paul Nangle has generously offered the use of his cabin on May 21 to hike Troublesome Creek and/or Byer’s Lake.

Byer’s Lake hike would be begin at 11am. Cell phones will work. Please email Alex Slivka at aslivka.rotary@gmail.com if you are interested in coming so that we can get a good headcount.
 

 
It is spring time, and that means Planet Walk Clean Up. Please join your fellow Rotarians in helping to pick up the winter accumulations along the Planet Walk. Our 2016 clean-up day is Saturday, May 7. Nadja Hipszer and the Environmental Committee are helping to coordinate our efforts around each planet. You can contact her directly at nadja.hipszer@premera.com to stake out your preferred cleaning spot. Remember that we always need a good amount of bikers, and this is a great exercise to involve the kids.
