Councilman Ron Radford read the committee report to the July 6 meeting of the Salmon City Council. He mentioned that the Kidís Garden program is showing tremendous interest. Twenty four youngsters are enrolled and their parents are very involved as well. Planting has begun on the Heritage Garden which could use some more volunteers to tend it.
Radford said Sacajawea Center Director Judy Barkley reported that the Youth Employment Program workers managed to move trails away from the Lemhi River just in time to avoid high water and she said around 40 members of an LDS Church youth group have done a lot of weeding on berms and have scrapped the sides of the barn in preparation for a mural. Barkley also told committee members that through the Centerís partnership with the Salmon Arts Council there will be a Tommy Overstreet concert during Heritage Days.
Barkley reported on the excellent volunteer training work by Lemhi County Museumís Hope Benedict and the Centerís involvement with the libraryís reading program.
The Back Country Horseman organization has signed an agreement to provide programming for Heritage Days as well as other programs for the Center.
Another subject discussed was organizing a committee for a National Park Service Historic Trails Grant. Sacajawea Center Committee member Bob Russell will serve on the grant committee along with Bonnie Jacubos, Barkley and an invited representative from the Lemhi Indian Tribe.
The next meeting of the Sacajawea Center Committee is set for July 12th at 10:30AM in the Learning Center. The meetings are open to the public.
