We're happy to report that the Muldoon Elementary after school programs are starting up again!

After a school delay we are ready to begin helping the 2012-2013 Muldoon 5th graders in their quest to read better.  We will be starting on Wednesday, November 7th at 4:30-5:30 P.M. in the Library.

This project started 4 years ago and has grown in student popularity each year. It's been a very rewarding volunteer experience by our Anchorage Gateway Rotarians and other volunteers seeing the 5th graders gain confidence in their reading and speaking skills.

For quite few years members of our club have taken the challenge of maintaining the little strip of grass and greeneries at the corner of Muldoon and Debarr.

Flags that we have placed there are a moving targets. They disappear but later show up again, as they did lately. Is not a big park, but with a bench and a stream flowing nearby is a nice place to rest and give some embellishment to the area.

Very often local residents, driving by while we are weeding or cleaning, do not hesitate to honk their approval and at times they scream a big "Thank you".

We like that!
