Glimmer in the eye of Special Projects 6-1986

From the Rotary Rumbles 6-1987

The ground breaking for the fitness trail took place on Friday, June 5th at 3 P.M. President Tom kicked off the affair with thank yous to those that donated money and those that gave or will be giving of their time and equipment. Hard hats and gold plated shovels were handed out to those acclaimed dignitaries to help with the ground breaking. Jackhammers would have been better for the occasion as Donna Stalley tried to turn her shovel into a pogo stick on the hard ground. Saturday, the crews were working away with removing sod on the 2.1 mile trail. The only problem
that arose is when the forklift got stuck in some soft ground over by the baseball diamonds. (To be continued)

From the Rotary Rumbles 6-1987 Final letter from Tom

      A special thank you needs to be given to the Special Projects Committee. The fitness trail project is the main endeavor of our club this year. It has taken a tremendous amount of time and effort by the special project committee to raise the $50,000 required to build the trail and a considerable amount of time and effort by the entire club is still needed to complete construction of the project. I remember the looks I got from many members when I announced last August that we would be raising $35,000 to build a fitness trail. When we announced that the budget had been increased to $50,000 the looks of astonishment also increased. But as the initial, large donations were received it became apparant that the community was enthused about this project and that our lofty goal could be achieved. Not only did we achieve the goal but we hadfun dong it. I think it is safe to say that all those who participated in the Roitary fund raising dinner at the Sandpiper had a great time. We have come a long way but there is a long way yet to go.

       The construction of the exercise stations is going to take a lot of labor. We are hoping for the help of at least 75 Rotarianson the weekend of June 27th & 28th.
       We all owe a big thank you to Mike Brock, committee chairmen, and to members Franny Florence, Cliff Snyder, Greg Edson, Bill Block, Rich Stivers, Kevin Trainor, Marty McLellan, Jeff Harris, Tom Kolouch, Gary Bond, Ken Deibert, Tim Obenchain, Mark Koffer, and to whoever I may have forgotten.
       The Twin Falls Rotary Club is a great organization because it is made up of great members. It has been a pleasure serving as president this past year. Thank you all for your participation and for your vote of confidence in electing me to serve as president.


Sincerely
Tom Ashenbrener
