Special Board of Trustees Meeting

A special meeting of the Board of Trustees has been called for 8pm on Wednesday, September 7, 2016.

The meeting has been called and includes a single agenda item to discussing ongoing legal issues related to a Wilderness Rim Member. The meeting will be conducted in executive session to protect the anonymity of the WRA Member. All motions will be made and voted on after the executive session ends and will be included in the meeting minutes which will be made available to all members.

Annual Meeting Voting

Hello Wilderness Rim,

As many of you have heard, we are moving over to an online voting format this year. Some of you have started receiving an instruction packet in the mail that explains the move and how to register with your unique registration code. We wanted to clarify that registration and voting will not open until September 3, 2016. So if you try before hand, you may get an error.

In the future, you will be able to log in with your user ID that you create during registration anytime to see if there are any open voting or active surveys. We want to hear from the community and will be using this system often!

Thank you!

 

2016 WRA Annual Meeting

Chalet Roof Work Underway

Neighbors,

The long anticipated work on the Chalet roof will begin tomorrow, Tuesday, August 30, 2016. The work should take approximately 2 weeks. There may be times when the office and or the meeting area of the Chalet are closed for safety. Those times should be fairly infrequent. Feel free to contact the Office by email or phone if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Wilderness Rim Association Board of Trustees

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

Chalet Roof Project Update

The Wilderness Rim Board of Trustees has selected a contractor to replace the Chalet and Office roofs based on the Park Committee’s recommendations.

The work is tentatively scheduled to begin late August/early September.

WRA has requested a specific start date from the contractor and will update the WRA calendar once a firm date for the work has been established with the contractor.

If you have any questions about the project, please feel free to contact the Park Committee.

Picture of Chalet in 1969, sporting the cedar shake roof… the lack of trees is quite striking. When Wilderness Rim was established, it was built in a clear cut.
