Grant for Camp Fire History Kiosk at Nadaka

The Friends of Nadaka with the partnership of Human Solutions has received a $1000 matching grant through the City of Gresham’s Arts & Cultural Assistance Grant Program for a Camp Fire history kiosk at Nadaka.

Camp Fire historian, Nancy King will be designing the display and Jerry King will be constructing the kiosk.  We hope to get donations for materials such as cement, wood and shingles for the construction.  The project is scheduled to be completed by Jan. 31, 2013 and volunteers will be needed for the installation of the kiosk inside Nadaka.  If you would like to donate materials or volunteer to help with the installation please contact Lee at leewilkeseastna@hotmail.com.
