|BUSY SUMMER AT CENTER|
SACAJAWEA CENTER COMMITTEE 8-17-11 LMS
Sacajawea Center Committee chairman Ron Radford told the August 17 meeting of the Salmon City Council that some wall-art on one of the centerís sheds is really worth a visit. He thanked Bob Wiederrick for donating the funds to purchase the paints and brushes.
The committee met on August 9th and heard the latest update on finances. It was announced that there were several Learning Center reservations for this month as well as reservations as far in advance as next summer.
Sacajawea Center Director Judy Barkley reported on the conclusion of the girls Tuff Stuff program. The program was to conclude on August 12 with a luncheon for local professional women, prepared and hosted by the program participants. Two other center projects that have proven to be very successful are the Kidís Garden and the Water Camp.
Radford said some committee members are working on a Maze project and will have more details by the September 13 committee meeting. He also said a Museum Access Program (MAP) representative will be visiting the center on August 29 and 30. The centerís MAP committee will be hosting a social gathering on the 29th.
The committee heard a review of all the plans being made for the August 19-20 Heritage Days celebration. As of the day of the committee meeting around 35 primitive campers were scheduled to attend the Rendezvous with the 1805 Experience scheduled to begin on the 12th. Other Heritage Days events included a quilt show, an art show and a Dutch Oven cook out.
The committee spent time discussing the possibility of a Pump Track at the center and also talked about the need for some directional signs. Over the years the centerís variety of greenery has become increasingly lush to the point some of the buildings are difficult to find without directional signs, including the Interpretive Center itself.
The next meeting of the Sacajawea Center Committee will be September 13 in the Learning Center beginning at 10:30AM. The public is welcome to attend.
