DONATION TO CENTER PROGRAM 5-16-12 LMS
The local Fraternal Order of Eagles President Fred Waidely, who is also a City Councilman and Sacajawea Center Team member, has decided to dedicate his Eagles Presidentís Fund to youth programming at the Sacajawea Center. Sacajawea Center Team Chairman Jessie Bender included the announcement in her May 16th team meeting report to the Salmon City Council. Waidelyís Eagles Presidentís Fund presently contains $500.
Bender said the teamís May 9th meeting featured a staffing and event update from Center Director Judy Barkley who also noted that the Argentine Braiding Workshop held at the center in early May was a very successful event.
During the meeting the team was introduced to Tom Whitson who was awarded this seasonís haying contract on the center grounds.
Bender said one of the items discussed by the team was a cost sharing arrangement with adjacent landowners for rebuilding the fence bordering the Baird land. She said Barkley will speak with City Finance Director Amy Fealko to ascertain if funding for the project is available in the Sacajawea Center budget. If so, the Sacajawea Center Team will recommend to the council that the city offer to pay half of the fencing expenses which estimates predict will be around $750.
Several weeks ago Mayor Leo Marshall challenged the team to develop a budget that will allow successful operation of the Center. Bender said in answer to the challenge Barkley will be reviewing the present budget worksheet and meeting with budget sub-team members. Results from that May 15th meeting will be reported at the next Sacajawea Center Team meeting which is scheduled for June 13 at 11:30AM in the Learning Center.
All of the various city team meetings are open to the public.
