Thank You Volunteers!

Many thanks to our volunteers (Jim Braden, Carolyn Braden, Dave Federighi, Karyn Fritze, Naomi Grant, John Griffith, Mimi Miller, Lesley Murphy, Ben Olmstead, Gina Olson, Jean Peterson, Jane Petrich, Lisa Stapleton, Jamie Stratton, Bill and Charlene Welty) who helped put on FICRA's annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Holiday Concert at the Nichols Community Center on December 2nd.  More than 150 folks showed up to welcome Santa (who arrived by fire engine courtesy of the volunteers at Gig Harbor Fire & Medic One) and enjoy the great concert by the Wickline Family and Friends.  

Other Items

The Sports Field received another hydro-seeding on September 13th. The grass area of the field is closed until further notice; the track will remain open.   The NCC outdoor area is open to dogs ON LEASH, ONLY. This will be the policy as long as pet owners comply with the rules and clean up after their animals (and take the waste material home). If we continue to find pet waste (both in and out of bags) left at the NCC, we will no longer be able to allow dogs.

New directional addressing went into effect for Fox Island back on April 1st.  The changes, which were needed for the 911 system, were simple for Fox Island - we will lost the FI suffix on our street names. The United States Postal Service will continue to deliver mail using the old addressing conventions for at least one year.  For more information check out the Pierce County website.
