Senior Trail Ride moved to Lions Lake

The Senior Trail Ride scheduled for Wednesday has been moved to Lions Lake and the Swine Pavilion at the Washington Fairgrounds, due to flood conditions on the river. Tram rides will be at 9, 10, 11, noon, 1 and 2:00. Bingo games will be under the main pavilion starting at 9:00. Lunch will be served from 10:30 to 1:30. Tram ride seats are still available. There is no charge for the event or food. You can make reservations by calling the Washington Parks Department at 636-390-1080.

Event co-chair Barb Hellmann said that logistics are in place to be able to shuttle seniors from the parking area directly to the pavillion. Valet parking also will be available. Those living within the city limits of Washington who need a ride can call the Parks Department, and a free ride will be provided by Modern Auto Company of Washington.

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.
