Start your day right! On May 4, at the Lions Breakfast, there will be a special donation box designated for those who are afflicted with vision and hearing challenges. Each year in May the club has a "White Cane Awareness Day" to help the Pacific Northwest Lions Foundation provide funding towards physical tests and functioning aids for the people suffering with these hardships.
Then join fellow volunteers, also on May 4, for a work party to clean the park at the Activity Center from 9 to noon. The Columbia Basin Goat Guild will hold its annual event there on Saturday, May 18. Snacks will be available to workers, which brings me to the annual Clean up at Balch Cemetery also on May 18, with a potluck following at noon. Remember; a healthy meal is food for the body; while volunteering to the community gives food for the soul.
Everywhere you look volunteers are at work in our little community. The museum is getting a landscape makeover with the junipers being removed; cleaning and renovations are continuing at the Activity Center both inside and out, as well as painting of the fire department and the service station. Someone near the point called and stated that her panoramic view of the river has been improved by those who cleared some of the clutter and litter on the point. And a committee creating a community garden at the school is in search of someone with a rototiller to help with the project. If you can help, call 365-3903. Photos are being taken of various graffiti and will be given to the sheriff's department for aiding prosecution. When that idiot is caught everyone will be happier.
A caller concerned that a camper parked near two eagle nests in a tree on the point is disrupting the eagles nesting routine. As neither her visit to the camper's door, suggesting they move, nor calls to the agency has brought her any satisfaction...perhaps the Audubon Society?
