Cancer wellness program
Fitness Essentials is offering a free eight-week session for cancer patients and cancer survivors as part of the Cancer Wellness Program.
Students will meet with a certified fitness trainer once a week and be able to workout at the gym throughout the week.
The next class begins in January. Space is limited. For more information, contact Debbie at 586-6666.
Salmon Creek Trail closure
The Salmon Creek Trail has temporarily closed after recent heavy rains washed out approximately 100 feet of roadbed that begins the trail.
The trail is now hazardous to hikers and will remain closed until repairs can be made next summer. A "No Trespassing" sign has been posted at the trail entrance.
AEL&P recognizes the importance of this popular recreational area and asks the public to avoid using the Salmon Creek trail until further notice.
