Edward F. Greiner Jr. Memorial 5K Walk/Run 
Eight-year-old Tyler Kautzman met SSG Eddie Greiner when the youngster asked for donations for overseas troops instead of birthday presents. The donations were sent to Eddie's 82nd Airborne Division. When Eddie came back home, he visited Tyler, and they became fast friends. The five-year friendship story has a very sad ending because Eddie was killed in a motorcycle accident when a pickup turned left in front of him. This 5K memorial walk/run is to celebrate their friendship and Eddie's life. Proceeds benefit the Yellow Ribbon Girls, a non- profit dedicated to sending monthly care packages to our service men & women overseas. Visit World Wide Web Icon www.eddie5kwalk.com for additional information or to register, donate or volunteer.

North Park Trail Workday 
Help fix the muddy trail in the field behind the Olympia Shelter (across from the ice rink). We will be installing a ~200 ft. French drain in the field and other small drains in the trail. We won't be digging the trench by hand! Bring gloves, shoes & clothes for getting dirty, a wheelbarrow if you can. We may have to move gravel from the road to the drain if we aren't able to have the gravel dumped at the top of the field. Food will be provided to refuel after digging.
