VOLUNTEERS NEEDED at Mountain Thrift Shoppe
The Mountains Group is one of nine
non-profit groups who volunteer at the
Mountain Thrift Shoppe in Blue Jay.
Over the past few years several of our
volunteers have moved away and the Mountains
Group is now short of help.
If you have a few free
hours a week and would like to help, or if
you would like more information, please
contact Heather at
to email her.
The Shoppe is open
Monday thru Saturday 10 am to 4 pm and
Sundays noon to 4 pm.
Sierra Club volunteers
work mostly on Mondays and Wednesday
afternoons, and are in charge of sorting and
pricing children's clothes. If you can't be
available every week, you could be a
substitute, to come in when needed.
Everybody working at the
Thrift Shoppe is a volunteer. The
organizations get paid every six months
according to the number of hours each group
has worked. The money has to be spent here
in the Rim of the World school district.
Some of the money the Sierra Club receives
goes to a Rim High School scholarship, some
to the Children's Forest, and it has been
invaluable to use for litigation purposes.

Church of the Woods
COW has submitted a preliminary redesigned
and reduced proposal to the County Planning
Department. The new plans include fewer ball
fields, and the building plans have been reduced
by 20,000 sq. ft. There are still some retaining
walls along Hwy 18.
The Planning Dept will look over the redesign
and meet with COW in the first week of March.
There will be a public hearing on the new
plans, unless the Church withdraws the project.
If they decide to go forward with it, the
Planning Dept will circulate the new plan.
We hope to have more information after
the Planning Department's meeting with COW in
