We are getting closer. NVCA and TLW are teaming up to complete the lease/license agreement by the end of summer – maybe sooner. With a signed agreement we can begin developing a park – still a lot of work to do but we will be on our way.
While we are working out the details we are proceeding in other areas – our Educational Outreach group is working with the Nestucca Valley School District on the Summer Science Camp that got underway today. Fifty-six students from grades 1-6 are participating. NVCA has the next three Thursdays for demonstrations.
Other activities include Dory Days and our first ever fund raiser on August 11th.
For Dory Days – we need a few people to help set-up our tent on the morning of July 20 and tear it down again in the late afternoon – evening. At Dory Days we will be featuring videos from OOI – the Oceans Observatories Initiative, TLW will have information on the fiber optic system in Tillamook County and we will have some concept drawings of park – including an area for a skate park.
Fund Raiser – Saturday – August 10th. THis fund raiser is a silent auction in the afternoon and a dinner and dance in the evening. All funds raised at this event will go towards the development of the park. We need people who can help set up, assist at the silent auction, set up for dinner and clean up after dinner. It will be only a few hours of your time to help.
Got questions, – just let us know – e-mail us at NVCAinfo@gmail.com.
We hope you will help us with these first steps toward the park.
