Work on the Peaks Trail is essential due to the high volume of traffic. We will employ some basic trail maintenance techniques to ensure that this gem of a trail can be used for years and decades to come.

Membership Committee News
We want to thank all of those sponsors who are identifying community leaders/business professionals and bringing them to our meetings. Remember, a Prospective Member should attend 3 meetings before turning in their application, sponsor form, a short bio and $100 application fee to the Membership Director, STEPHANIE KATZ or any one on the Membership Committee. The application will be presented to the Membership Committee for approval and then the Board of Directors. Once approved, their name and bio will be posted in our bulletin for 3 weeks. If there are no questions about the Prospective Member the induction will be scheduled.
Once you choose to sponsor, the primary sponsor will be responsible to mentor the new member through the Red Badge process. We encourage all members to interact with Prospective/New Members as much as possible. One of the Red Badge requirements is to be a Greeter 3 times. Because our club is growing and we are experiencing so many guests, greeters are very important. You don't have to be a new member to be a greeter. It is just one more way of participating in Club Service.
Membership Committee Members are: Stephanie Katz, Julianne Gilchrist, Deb Irvine, Tom Marmins, Sandy Mortensen, Ann Clement, Susan Juergensmeier, Rolando Cuadrado, and Peggy Beeler.
