• The board of Sisters Trails Alliance sends a huge thank you to our friends at Lake Creek Lodge for the unexpected and generous donation.

Once volunteers are back out on the trails doing regular maintenance and trail work they’ll put those funds to good use providing the tools and materials they need and the appreciation they deserve for keeping our trail system in great shape.

• The Steering Committee of the Sisters Cold Weather Shelter would like to acknowledge and thank all our supporters over the past four winters. We could not have done the work we did serving our homeless in Sisters without your assistance.

For shelter space — the four churches that opened their doors: Church of the Transfiguration, Shepherd of the Hills, Sisters Community Church and Wellhouse Church.

Our volunteers: We are grateful for dozens of volunteers who provided scrumptious dinners and breakfasts, or monitored for an evening or overnight. And the folks who helped us fundraise, strategize and coordinate volunteers

Our staff: We used “Night Owls” overnight who made sure everyone had a safe night’s sleep, and cleaned the facilities. Plus Jo Ann Rundell who helped with communications and volunteer coordination the past two years.

Our donors: Almost every restaurant in Sisters contributed meals, and we had many donations of materials and supplies from our local business community. We are grateful for all the clothing and other items donated which helped keep people warm, and the financial contributions from so many that helped us keep our doors open on the cold and snowy winter nights.

Thank you!
