Do you love the Wilderness Rim park?

Hi Neighbors!
Do you love Wilderness Rim’s Cascade Park and Brewster Lake?  Then come join your neighbors to show our recreation areas some TLC on Saturday, August 27th starting at 9am.  Here’s the plan in brief:
  • Show up at 9am
  • Have fun
  • Clean up dead branches and re-purpose them for Mother Earth via a Chipper
  • Meet neighbors
  • Paint the park picnic tables at the shelter
  • Eat some food and talk to your neighbors

If you are able to make it, please let us know so that we can plan accordingly and keep you well fed and happy during the day. Please email park@wildernessrim.org to confirm you will be blessing us with your presence. If you are planning on joining us, it might be a good idea to bring some work gloves.

Also, if you can’t make that date but are still interested in helping out, you can! From now until park cleanup day, you can help by gathering dead branches on your own time and bringing them over to the waste bins by the WRA office. This will help us get a good head start on the clean up.
If you have any questions about the event, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly (trustee3@wildernessrim.org) or the WRA Parks Committee (park@wildernessrim.org).
Looking forward to meeting you!
Jason Lange, Trustee 3
Wilderness Rim Board of Trustees

Budget and Finance Committee Meeting Cancelled

The Treasurer is not available to Chair this Committee Meeting due to another event that takes precedence at this time.

As volunteers, the trustees and committee leaders, will find it difficult to prioritize WRA activities over more fulfilling interests or commitments when their time and expertise is not valued here.

There is no requirement in our Bylaws or the RCW that a committee meeting be held at this time.

Should you have any constructive observations, questions or concerns, please email them to Susie, at office@wildernessrim.org.  The office will, as always, respond to these items or forward them to the appropriate committee leadership or the trustees.  Please remember our posted office hours are when such messages are processed.

Thank you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Water Utilities Meeting Cancelled

Wil Chromey, Co-Chair of the Water Utilities Committee, being very satisfied at the performance of Satellite Management Services and Roger Lillejord, and having no pressing business to address is cancelling this meeting and will convene again in August.

The meters will be read this coming weekend by Ben Larson.  Please keep an eye out for him on his bicycle as he travels our community’s streets.

Anyone with questions or concerns for the Water Utilities Committee are encouraged to email water@wildernessrim.org.
