Doing Democracy—the Art of Public Discussion
May 16th from 6:30-8:30pm

This program will sponsor open public dialogues throughout the year on issues facing our community. The hope is to foster a culture of civil discourse that allows multiple perspectives and creative conflict leading to the discovery of common needs and perhaps common visions.

Last month, our first conversation focused on brainstorming and generating topics for this year’s discussions, which were then voted on. Our very first discussion will be on the topic of:  “How can we design our community so a person’s income is not a barrier to opportunity or well-being?  What does it say about our collective priorities that people who work here cannot afford a decent living?”  All are welcome, so come down and meet with your fellow citizens.  Free babysitting will be provided.


Hiker’s Guide Author Visit
May 17th at 6:30pm

Come join local author, Scott Marchant, for an introduction and slideshow on hikes from his new guidebook–The Hiker’s Guide McCall & Cascade (2nd Edition). The new book, which will release in late April, highlights 65 hikes near McCall, Cascade and Warm Lake. In this 2nd edition, you will discover twenty-one new hikes, different hiking options for hikes found in the 1st edition, improved maps and color photography. Scott will share many of the new trails he discovered over the last year including the best hikes for early season, views, solitude, wildflowers, backpacking and hiking with the family. In addition to the scenic photography Scott will share, he will also discuss trailhead access and the best times to hike each trail.
