A Ladd Marsh Adventure + Office Project Update!!

Have you ever been out to Ladd Marsh? Sharron took a walk Sunday afternoon and enjoyed the beautiful weather at Ladd Marsh. The Nature Walk Trail is about a mile long and is accessible to the public off of Foothill Road. You can check it out by taking the Foothill Road exit and go left like your heading toward North Powder and it is right across from the freeway on your left. Sharron took along her dog and her hubby for a fun afternoon outing in the sunshine! She snapped us this pretty picture while she was there.
If you haven't made it out to Imbler lately, Randy took this picture of the new elementary school that is being built for us! They are making some progress!

In office news, over the next two months one of the regular sources for the Shelter from the Storm food bank will be significantly short - causing the shelter to have a big shortfall for their food bank over the next few months. We are going to hold a food drive over the next few weeks and you can drop donations at our office! There are many women beginning their lives over who rely on this for short term assistance. While you’re in you can also purchase your tickets for The Angel Fund spaghetti feed, which takes place Thursday, April 5th, 5-7:30pm. You can of course buy tickets at the door if you don't make it in to see us. If you can't make it for dinner you can also drop off any donation at RE/MAX Real Estate Team for The Angel Fund. The Angel Fund is a fund that assists unaccompanied and homeless youth in OUR community! Last year we raised a whopping $3,399! Any donation you’re willing to make for either of these projects we are taking on would be greatly appreciated!

We hope everyone is having or had a wonderful spring break! If you’re looking for ways to fill your days off, add the Nature Walk Trail to your list of to dos!
