MOLALLA Outdoor Adventures...2009

By: Karen Graves - Director

MOLALLA Spring Fling :

May ..2009

I will be setting up the display board and a couple tents, backpacks, additional table with pictures and flyers in the park in Molalla. Several things are going on in town so we should get some great exposure.
I am wanting to play abit with the ropes and harness letting people lean back while I have them anchored but not sure with all my jobs on my head that I will be awake enough by Saturday to remember how to tie a figure 8 !!! :-)
I will take couple px. of the display so you have that information of what we can do. I plan on having my two dogs present WITH packs as at the inside Sportsman show at the church they were a big hit.
I am excited about this adventure into the unknown. Both banners will be present...the UPward Trails banner and the logo banner.

Questions , or Concerns: Call Karen 503-919-9027
Pray for, my strength
Thank you
