WEEK OF JUNE 12TH 2017  

UPLIFTING ELEVATOR PROGRESS REPORT  

 

UPLIFTING ELEVATOR PROGRESS REPORT      #22           June 19, 2017

 

Good News!  The Nu-2-U shop is almost ready and the plan as of now is to open this week, maybe by the time this is being read.  The lounge is in use, still some arranging, decorating and positioning of the furnishings to be done which will be ongoing for a while.

 

It now looks like the actual elevator may arrive here sometime this week, after much delay, and installation will follow.  Then the Salem inspector needs to arrive before the elevator can be put into use.  As this goes on our contractor, Jeff Cochenour, will be getting as many of the finishing touches done, with as little as possible left to do once the elevator is completed.

 

We will plan a grand opening with formal ribbon cutting and will keep posting the details as soon as possible.  It has been a long haul, with just a bit left to go. Thanks for the patience and understanding from all!  Joan

CLASS SCHEDULE CHANGES FOR THE SUMMER

During the summer, there are several class changes. Corliss Marsh’s Tai Chi class will not be meeting and will return in September. The same is true for the Brain Fitness Club and Lunch with TED. But during the summer, I will be working on adding new classes and program for the fall and winter. Stay tuned.

EVERY KID IN A PARK PASS

Hood River, Ore.  With summer vacation right around the corner, fourth graders can spend their time away from schoolbooks in the scenic beauty of public lands…for free!

 

For the third year in a row, children enrolled in fourth grade for the 2016-17 school year are eligible for an Every Kid in a Park pass, which provides free entry onto federal public lands.

 

Beyond simply the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, the pass is good nationwide, from Tongass National Forest in rugged Alaska all the way to sunny Ocala National Forest in Florida.

 

Every Kid pass waives parking fees anywhere where a day pass is required for the fourth grader.  It can also help cover the cost of family members as it includes the occupants of a single, non-commercial vehicle OR the pass holder plus three people where per person fees are charged. The pass does not cover camping, tours, special recreation permits and most concession operated facilities. The voucher and passes are valid until August 31, 2017.

 

To obtain an Every Kid pass, visit www.everykidinapark.gov, play a fun educational activity, then print your earned voucher and present it to your nearest Forest Service office in exchange for a plastic pass.

Bring the printed voucher into the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area’s headquarters in Hood River, located at 902 Wasco Avenue, Suite 200 from 8:00 to 4:30 on Monday

 through Friday (excluding federal holidays).

 

 

Place your annual pass on your dashboard in lieu of a day pass—no need for fee envelopes! Come try it out at any one of our trailheads, including Eagle Creek Trailhead, Bridge of the Gods Trailhead, Wahclella Falls, Sam’s Walker Picnic Area, and many more.

Better yet, your Every Kid pass is eligible to be used for federal lands managed by these agencies as well:

·        National Park Service

·        U.S. Bureau of Land Management 

·        U.S. Bureau of Reclamation

·        National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

·        National Park Service

Why Fourth Grade?

The Every Kid in a Park program encourages children to explore, learn, and play in the spectacular places that belong to us all and aims to inspire future generations to serve as stewards of these places. Research shows that children ages 9-11 are at a unique stage in their learning where they begin to understand how the world around them works in more concrete ways. Today, more than 80 percent of American families live in urban areas and kids are spending more hours in front of screens instead of heading outdoors for entertainment. By providing these passes, Every Kid in a Park is designed to provide every child in the U.S. with an opportunity to visit public lands by the time he or she is 11 years old.
