Carol and Joanna recently made a trip to the REI store in Seattle to receive a generous check and go on a shopping spree. With REI's donation we were able to purchase several new Novara mountain bikes, 2 Coleman camp stoves, compasses, belay gloves, climbing helmets, and more. A big thank you to REI for their support. Andy took one of the bikes for a spin around camp and commented that they are a "sweet ride". We will be recycling a few of our older bikes to Sharing Wheels in Everett where they will be refreshed and given to people in need.
