MARCH 4th Thursday 7-8:30am The plan is to start at Denny’s now (College and Martin Way), stay small per state guidelines, keep zoom going at the same time, while practicing social distancing and staying safe. Each person will decide if it is something they want to do. But get your shots and join the Denny’s group when you can. ZOOM 7:30-8:30 am — NON MEMBERS: Contact the Secretary for the zoom meeting link LionJoelGraves@gmail.com.
Adopt-a-Road Roadside Cleanup
March 6, Sat 9am along Carpenter Road from Pacific Ave to Roolan Care Center. Takes about one hour. POC: John Christiansen
MARCH 14th Didn’t we vote to stay on Daylight Savings Time in 2019? The problem is, staying permanently on daylight saving time (the “sprung forward” time) has not yet been recognized by the federal government. The states that currently do not recognize DST, Hawaii and most of Arizona, are allowed to do so because they remain on standard time, which is allowed under federal law.
FOODBANK WAREHOUSE REPACKAGING
MAR 18, Thurs 9 to Noon. Looks like we are going to be at the foodbank on a monthly basis–3rd Thursday after club meeting. Thurston County Foodbank Warehouse (2260 Mottman Rd) is a massive food distribution center. Typically, we take bulk food and repackage into smaller portions. POC: Lyell Clark

BOB KELLEY WHEELCHAIR RAMP PROJECT
We usually install ramps after the Thursday morning club meetings, but then the snow warning came. So the crew assembled on Wed, Feb 10th in 32 degree weather and built the 24 ft ramp for Marion (91 yrs old) and Maxine (88 yrs old) Smith. Maxine tested the ramp and easily walked up and down the incline, giving us her seal of approval.
