Darrell Spies reported at the community council meeting on April 19 that the Glenwood Women's Club has asked if anyone would be willing to take over care of the Conboy Park. This would be a great project for a group wishing to do a good deed or community service. For more information, please contact Darrell at 364-3541.
Mr. Spies also announced that Mt. Adams Resource Stewards (MARS) and the Mt. Adams Snowmobile Club have taken over maintenance responsibilities for the Island Camp shelter and Bird Creek Campground. A cleanup day is scheduled for May 7 to spiff up those properties. Anyone interested in helping with the cleanup will be welcome! Darrell also encouraged everyone using either Island Camp or Bird Creek Campground to fill out the visitor surveys and leave them in the boxes that are provided on the premises. The surveys help determine the number of visitors utilizing those areas!
