"FREE" DAYS AT STATE PARKS
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will offer three "free days" this month and next month. Visitors will not need to display a Discover Pass for day-use visits to state parks on these dates. The three dates are May 10, a springtime free day; June 6, in recognition of National Trails Day; and June 13, which is National Get Outdoors Day. On these dates, no Discover Pass is needed to park in the day use parking lots at St Edward State Park on the Kirkland and Kenmore boundary, and Bridle Trails State Park in Kirkland.
For information about the Discover Pass, visit www.DiscoverPass.wa.gov.
Invite a friend, relative or neighbor to come along with you for an evening at the club house.
Donations from last month were made and gladly accepted. Needs for this next month are mostly the same. All donations are appreciated but this time of year we always concentrate on school getting out.
When school gets out many kids are home alone fixing their own lunch. Also many teens are taking care of younger siblings. So this month and next let's try and bring lunch items that are easy for kids to put together. A few ideas are peanut and jelly, soups, canned beans, such as pork and beans, or chili, canned fruits, such as mandarin oranges, or fruit cocktail. Canned meats are good like tuna, or chicken, or even Spam. I'm sure you have many ideas of your own so just bring what ever you can.

Did you know Kenmore is home to Great Blue Herons? Great Blue Herons nest in colonies, sometimes referred to as rookeries or heronries. Heronries are usually in isolated spots away from potential disturbance and near suitable feeding areas. The Kenmore heronry is located at the north end of the Kenmore Park and Ride, 7346 NE Bothell Way. At next Wednesday's Potluck, bring your binoculars so a group can go see them after we eat!
Their nests are even more remarkable when you consider great blue herons reach 4 feet in height and have wingspans of nearly 6 feet.
The Rhody's are out! If you haven't visited Rhododendron Park in awhile, now is a great time to visit. The one time estate of Reginald A. "Charlie" Pearce and his wife, is now one of the gems of Kenmore's park system. And right now the Rhododendrons are blooming in a dazzling display of colors.
Pearce created at least three new hybrids, the best known of which are Pinky Pearce (azalea), Pearce's Golden Jubilee and Pearce's American Beauty (rhodies), specimens of which are in the park. It is a great park for kids too with a picnic shelter and playground. Go check it out!

The importance of club members and interested supporters of the community participating in club work parties cannot be stressed enough. Without the help more of this work will be farmed out which will raise the cost of our operations. Please remember this is your club house, you own it and it is up to you to help maintain it.
