Rotary Trail Volunteers Build Two Kiosks

Anacortes Rotary’s Centennial Viewpoint Trail project work officially got underway this week as Anacortes Rotarians Jim MacDonald, Tom Kuhn and Mark Lascelles, joined by community volunteer Tom Haug, put finishing touches on two trailhead kiosks for Rotary and Cap Sante parks. 

The structures will be placed on site by city crews. When complete, the kiosks will feature new signs helping visitors navigate the parks.

Funding for the kiosks and trail head signs is being provided by the club, a Rotary District 5050 grant and lodging tax money from the City of Anacortes. Kiosk design assistance was provided by Angela and Stuart Currie of Currie Design Group in Anacortes. Volunteers will build several additional kiosks for park use later this spring. 

Coming soon are more opportunities for hands-on volunteer work as part of our Club’s Centennial. Next up will be the enhancement work on the main viewpoint trail itself. City Parks and Recreation personnel will take the lead but we will need about 10-15 club volunteers to clear paths and spread crushed rock along with other tasks. 

Dates for this work are expected to be early in 2022. If you want to pitch in, please contact Tom Decker at tomkdecker@gmail.com. That way, you’ll be on the list to be notified when the work party dates are set
