Get-well wishes for Clara and Dixie

   As many of us know recently Clara Clark suffered a bike accident. She is now     
   recovering at home and in good spirit. 
   And Dixie Girdner is now also recovering from her recent knee surgery.
   We missed them both at SBC Annual Banquet and wish them full and speedy 
   healing. In lieu of passing a traditional get-well paper card we have set up a
   forum page for all well-wishers who can add their personal messages to Clara
   and Dixie (select topic then use Reply button).

 Thermoplastic markers improve Centennial Trail wayfinding 


Centennial Trail users now have an easier time navigating their way from Mission Park to the south side of TJ Meenach Bridge!  Friends of the Centennial Trail have donated funds to City of Spokane Parks and Recreation for the purchase and installation of 22 thermoplastic markers and arrows.  Fused to the asphalt, these markers have been placed where there is confusion about where to find the Centennial Trail.   


The project cost $9,200 and was funded from Spokane Bike Swap & Expo proceeds held in the Trail Builder's Fund of Friends of the Centennial Trail.  


Our thanks to National Barricade and Mathis Striping for their work and expertise on this special project!
