Enjoy these opportunities to serve and to have some fun this month:
- On Saturday, September 9, is the 9/11 National Day of Service for Oneida County. There are lots of service projects, enough to involve everyone in the community, young and old, to be held at the following areas: the City Green Belt, Victory Baptist Church and Carol’s Pantry, shooting area East of I-15, Oneida County Fair Grounds; Holbrook Church, behind the Veterans Memorial, First Presbyterian Church and Heritage Square.
Please check The Idaho Enterprise for further details. Sign up and find details also on JustServe.org. This is a day to remember the terrible tragedy of September 11, 2001, and to help transform communities by serving and doing good.
- Come join us at Malad City Park on September 13 for a walking party sponsored by AARP and coordinated by Molly Beseris of 4-CASI and Malad City Councilman Tyrell Neal! The walking party is for everyone in the community and is aimed at helping people learn to enjoy walking for their health and to meet others in the community. Meet at the pavilion at Malad City Park at 7:00 p.m. There will be glow sticks, music and some instruction on the benefits of walking. Bring a friend! Bring your kids, strollers are welcome!
- On September 14, certain members of the community will be invited to receive training from AARP that focuses on helping people be active, how to form walking groups and promote the health benefits of being active and walking every day. Lunch will be provided. If you are invited to this training, we hope you can all attend.
At 5:00 p.m., this group will do a walking audit where they will walk and assess sidewalks in Malad along a specified route. They will check out crosswalks, curb conditions, road conditions, and if there is anything that would impede walking comfortably and safely. This audit will provide data and information so that the city can apply for grants to help fix curb and gutter, upgrade handicap accessibility, and improve the condition of some of our sidewalks.
