|A HALLOWEEN FOR ALL|
HOWLING SUCCESS 11-16-11 LMS
The Sacajawea Interpretive Centerís Howl-O-Ween Family Fun night event drew from 350 to 400 people and earned $776 for the center.
A report read to the November 16 meeting of the Salmon City Council by Sacajawea Center Committee Chairman Ron Radford credited 4-H members, the high school volleyball team as well as many other volunteers for making the event such a rousing success.
The evening included pumpkin bowling, face painting, photographs, a petting zoo, pin the wart on the witch and a cake walk to which 101 cakes were donated along with an amazing amount of cookies. Jeremy Drake provided the animals for the petting zoo and the horse drawn wagon rides. Over 175 people went through the Haunted Barn which contributed $353 to the total amount for the evening.
Radford said the committee talked about yard and garden winterizing which included putting the outdoor equipment in the barn for winter storage. Candace Burns and the Youth Employment Program workers were thanked for all their garden work this fall which included planting garlic which will be harvested next summer. Center Director Judy Barkley is meeting with several groups regarding participation in the 2012 Heritage Garden season.
The committee discussed closing one of the outdoor bathrooms for a few months to save money.
Christmas season rentals of the Learning Center facility were reported and a new brochure featuring facility rental rates was presented.
Creation of a Sacajawea Center survey was discussed. The survey would include visitor information that could be used for marketing and event planning.
Radford said Director Barkley attended the recent Scenic Byways meeting in Boise where it was announced that funding for 2012 will be directed toward the creation of jobs through facility construction and related projects. A major Scenic Byways marketing program is being planned for 2013.
Radford said volunteers are busy decorating the center for Christmas.
