Mark your new 2014 calendar for Saturday February 1. That will be our annual Winter Social potluck and gathering to meet, greet, and learn more about plans for the forthcoming hazardous materials cleanup scheduled for this coming summer at Monte Cristo. Last year’s event was highly popular and extremely informative, a chance to ask questions and receive answers from Forest Service and state DOE folks in charge. We will return to The Barn at Jennings Park, 6915 Armar Road, in Marysville. Our potluck meal starts at 5:30 p.m., with program to follow. Please bring along a food item to share, while we will provide drinks and utensils. More information and reminders will be coming up.
