After each presentation, there will be time for questions and answers (we anticipate quite a few of them). Ron and Ben have never been to one of our meetings so this will be new information for all of us. It will be very interesting!
Cookies and drinks will be provided. Please come and share in getting to know your neighbors better and learn more about your community. It is a lot of fun!
The Chemawa Rd. street cleanup on Saturday, September 12th was amazing. Fifteen people showed up to pick up trash and share some stories while working together. We all enjoyed donuts and drinks after the job was done. It was great weather and a pleasant surprise to have so many serving our community. Lots of people waved and said, "Thank you!" as they drove by in their cars. A "Big Thank You" to Mayor Cathy Clark, Rhonda Rich, Carolyn Homan, Gary & Rachel Blake, Barbara Daniels, Matt, Heather, Avery and Evan Haymowicz, Tom Tomczyk, Kathy Lincoln, Noble Dechard, Don Beckman, and Les Layton.
The joint Salem Audubon Society and West Keizer Neighborhood Association birding field trip at Keizer Rapids Park on Wednesday, September 16th was attended by 9 SAS and 3 WKNA members. Carolyn Homan and Mike Unger lead the group for 1.5 miles through 3 distinct habitats and identified (saw or heard) 40 species. This was the third annual joint field trip but was unusual in that participants didn't get wet as they did on the last 2 field trips. Everyone had a very enjoyable morning!
