We are operating a bar and ice cream trailer this year at the Air Races! This event is going on from 9/15 to 9/19. It's a great fundraiser for the club. The sky is a little smoky still but the weather is great otherwise. We're lucky to have a decent view of the show from our booths. If you are attending come say hello!
Several of us met Kristopher Dahir for a walkthrough of the veteran memorial plaza being built at the Sparks Marina! We got to see the upper area that has metal plaques for business donors and bricks with messages from other donors. The lower area where the names of honored veterans will be displayed is still being built, and may be done as soon as next summer. It would be great to come back later and check on its progress!

Time to do more dirty work on our Vaughn Middle School corner. This will be another dig day, removing the old dirt and exposing the irrigation connections. We'll have some heavy equipment available and we'll need plenty of people on shovel duty. Sign up here!
