Tales from the Trails: The Ogden Marathon was full of smoke from shockingly-early-in-the-year wildfires in Alberta, but we still gathered almost 1,000 signatures (!) thanks to hard work from Casey, Dave, Dennis, Elise, Patty, and Yoram. And Keisha from Ogden’s Copper Nickel flagged us down to sign and to invite us to gather at their Pride Palooza on F June 2… we will be there!
The 100 Club: Those Ogden signatures haven’t been validated yet, and neither have a bunch of other packets, but we’re nearing 10,000 valid signatures total, so thanks to everyone who’s helped, and extra kudos to folks who have 100+ signatures (JJ, Brynn M, and Jan K), to folks who have 250+ signatures (Karen D and Dennis M), and to folks who have 500+ signatures (Lisa R, Dave C, and Yoram). There are over a dozen others who are on the board and within reach of the 100 Club… and there’s room for you too!
