July 13 column

TFM president Dave Lennstrom enjoys the view at Mirror Pond.
Here's a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: Fundraiser benefits Mirror Pond. It's all about next Sunday's (July 20) "Picnic for the Pond," which the Friends of Manito is hosting.

This will be a fundraiser for the improvement and restoration of Mirror Pond in Manito Park. The event includes a catered dinner, live music, a silent auction, and a no-host beer and wine garden run by No-Li Brewhouse. Everything takes place in and around the lower Manito Park/Rotary picnic shelter.

Tickets cost $30 for adults and $15 for kids aged 6 to 16. Here's the important thing: the deadline for purchasing tickets is Tues., July 15. That's because TFM needs a head count so they will have enough food on hand.

You can purchase tickets through the TFM website, at the Friends of Manito office (4 W. 21st Ave.,) or you can call (509) 456-8038.

I hope you can go to the picnic. It should make for a really pleasant evening and it's for a great cause, which you'll read about in my column.
