The future of the Sitka Outdoor Recreation Coalition (Get Out, Sitka!) will be discussed during the coalition’s meeting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 6, at Harrigan Centennial Hall.

During the 2011 Sitka Health Summit planning meeting on Friday, Sept. 30, three new community health projects were chosen to be worked on during 2011-12. The Get Out, Sitka! project was not one of the three new projects selected this year.

We can either carry on promoting outdoor activities and programs in Sitka, especially for kids and families. Or we can align ourselves with one or more of the three new Sitka Health Summit projects for this year:

  • Plan and implement a community compost and waste repurposing project;
  • Create a safe, sustainable, accessible and attractive community playground; or
  • Promote and expand indoor and outdoor access to exercise for all ages and abilities.

The Sitka Outdoor Recreation Coalition (Get Out, Sitka!) started as a community project from the 2010 Sitka Health Summit in October. Our mission has been to encourage more Sitka residents to get outdoors for recreation, especially kids and families. Our meetings are free and open to the public. Please join us. To learn more, contact Charles Bingham at 738-8875 or charleswbingham3@gmail.com.
