Be a Liberty Bell booster
The Liberty Bell Booster Club could use your participation — and leadership.
Club president Dee Townsend said this week that the club, which supports student activities, will hold elections for 2015-16 school year officers and committee chair positions on May 21, at 7 p.m. in the Liberty Bell High School library.
You do not have to be a parent to be involved, Townsend said. In addition to officers, committees that need chairs include public relations, clothing and merchandise, mascot manager, and fundraising (calendar and concession sales).
There will also be a student representative in the 2015-16 school year who can earn community service hours.
Boosters meet every third Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the library. For more information or to offer ideas, email email@example.com or call (360) 391-2533.
Make sure favorite hunting areas are open
Advice from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW): As hunters plan fall hunts and select special permit opportunities to apply for by May 20, they should scope out possible long-term closures on U.S. Forest Service roads in areas of north central Washington (Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest) where wildfires burned last summer and managers have to be careful about landslides and other hazards.
These closures could significantly complicate access to some hunters’ traditional favorite spots, WDFW said in a press release. To check out access before applying for permits, go to www.fs.usda.gov/detail/okawen/alerts-notices/?cid=stelprdb5308168.
