CENTER SEASON NUMBERS 9-16-15 LMS
End of season figures show the visitor count at the Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural and Educational Center was down however income was up from last year.
Sacajawea Center Team Chairman Fred Waidely told the Salmon City Councilís September 16 meeting that according to a report from Center Director Lin Gray the number of visitors totaled 4068 compared with last yearís 4362. The center income this season came to a total of $16,784 which is $513 dollars ahead of last year.
Waidely said all of July and the first half of August accounted for the busiest time. Visitation dropped off in late August. Heavy smoke in the valley was thought to be a contributing factor to the decline.
Coming events at the center will include a Fall Frolic on October 10th. It will replace the Halloween parties of the past. Waidely said Gray feels there are too many Hallo3ween parties already so she decided that perhaps doing the Fall Frolic on the 10th would be better attended.
The Visitor Center is now closed for the season but can be opened by appointment. The Learning Center is open year around and can be reserved for meetings or parties by calling the Sacajawea Center at 756-1188.
