Honor Society Volunteers

November 15, 2012

The Neah-Kah-Nie Chapter of the National Honor Society inducted 15 new members early in November. Members are chosen through a rigorous application process that highlights the student’s involvement in service, school and community activities, demonstration of leadership and maintenance of high scholastic standing within the school. The NKN Chapter of the NHS has been busy this fall with a variety of projects. This fall members have helped deliver tables and chairs to the annual Mudd Nick Foundation fund raising dinner in Nehalem, helped at a district cross-country meet, sold concessions, worked on fall induction of new members and recently participated in a service day in Bay City. Thirteen members spent the morning helping Gary Albright with various projects at the future site of the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum. Another twelve members cleaned up the yard and garden at Phyllis and Don Wustenberg’s home. Between now and Thanksgiving, the students will keep themselves busy as part of a joint project with the NKN art programs and many local and state agencies in a program that provides locally caught canned salmon and tuna to the Oregon Food Bank. The chapter will be affixing labels to approximately 5000 cans or salmon and tuna for this program.

A sincere “Thank You” to everyone that supported the museum through the Indiegogo campaign! We have already started construction on connecting the two initial paved trails so more people can enjoy the beauty of Kilchis Point Reserve.

The trails have been widened, best management practices installed (silt fence and straw wattles), and North Coast Lawn has already started laying gravel to extend the Education trail (from the bus parking area).

In addition, we have hung up a sign in sheet, provided trail maps, and left comment cards for visitors. This will help us keep track of the number of visitors to the site which will help with grant funding and we always appreciate comments and suggestions.
