SACAJAWEA CENTER TEAM REPORT 10-15-14 LMS
Reservations for Sacajawea Center facilities are now being booked through City Hall rather than the center. Sacajawea Center Team chairman and Councilman Fred Waidely told the Salmon City Council at its October 14 meeting that Center Director Lin Grey will report the number and type of rental reservations on either a monthly or quarterly basis.
As for statistics from the 2014 Summer Season Waidely said there was a total of 4,362 visits from May 26th to September 7th. There were 1,755 video viewings, approximately 2,500 visitors during the Outdoor School Program days and 264 Interpretive Talks at the Meriwether Theater. There were 139 participants in the centerís youth programs.
Waidely said the grant request submitted to the Governorís Trails Committee last Spring was not awarded however; Trail Committee members have stated they would like to provide funding for a professional landscaping plan to enhance the centerís Highway 93 entrance.
He said the cement ramps, required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), are still in the planning stage. A Request For Proposals (RFP) will be issued when plans are completed.
Waidely said Director Grey told the team that docents were taken on an overnight trip to Great Falls, Montana where they visited that cityís Interpretive Center. Grey said the means of transportation was the Lemhi Ride bus and that everyone enjoyed the trip. She said she hopes to make similar trips an annual event for the centerís volunteer docents.
When the Sacajawea Center Team met on October 8th, Grey apprised team members of all the Fall Family Fun Day activities planned for the coming weekend. She said she hopes it will become an annual tradition to replace the Halloween and haunted house events of the past.
After the team report Grey gave the City Council an update on the feedback she has received, from some of the center partners, about the centerís newly written mission statement. She asked council members to offer their opinions of the suggestions made so far and said she will then combine all the input and present the result at a future meeting.
The next meeting of the Sacajawea Center Team will be on the afternoon of November 12 at 4:14 in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room.
