Thank you to the many volunteers
who give generously
 of their time and talent.

Marisa Hoogenakker, Chair of Marketing/Community Outreach has worked diligently to make sure DWC members can support the community with several events we can all participate in.

Building and Grounds
A shout out to Pam Williams’ husband, Skip, who moved the pile of wood chips into the peace garden when the maple tree came down this fall. That was a big job!


Craft Dryer replaced the screen on the service door which appeared to have been kicked.


John Miller painted the boot rack in the entryway and also had one of the basement screens replaced and other maintenance repairs that need attention.

A Message from Lucy Kragness and the Camera Club

Camera club to explore Waabizheshikana Trail:
Wednesday, January 27th, 1 pm

 
All welcome to explore the Waabizheshikana (The Marten Way) /Western Waterfront Trail on Wednesday, January 27. It’s a beautiful walk along the bay over Kingsbury Creek. There were icy sections, but not bad on Saturday and worth it to watch a fox run across the bay. We will meet at 1 pm in the trail parking lot behind the Munger Inn.
From Grand Avenue, turn onto Pulaski Street, cross the railroad tracks  and parking lot on the left.
