Groups registered for the parade received a confirmation call this afternoon, with a special request: parade participants are asked to NOT wear a Santa costume.
Parade organizers want just the one and only official Santa to be the special feature in the parade to delight the children.
Check-in for the parade is at 6:00 in front of CJ’s (112 N. Main St.). The parade coordinator will be able to tell us our entry number and gathering location along Main Street.
The parade begins promptly at 7:00.
Moscow’s Active Living Task Force is recruiting captains to help lead teams of community members on a round-trip walk on Saturday morning, April 21 to evaluate a proposed route for Moscow’s first Neighborhood Greenway. Neighborhood greenways are streets with low traffic volume and speed where bicycles, pedestrians, and neighbors are given priority. Captains need to attend a training session at 4:00pm on April 19th which will included assessing one of the three legs of the proposed routes. If you are interested in being a team captain, please contact Assistant to the City Supervisor Jen Pfiffner by April 17th (firstname.lastname@example.org, 208.883.7123).
Let’s show Moscow that winter cycling is fun! Join Bike for Life in Moscow’s Annual “Light Up the Night Parade” on Wednesday, December 7th – meet at LocoGrinz at 6:30pm (parade starts at 7:00pm).
We need a minimum of 10 people on bikes. Wear your helmets and have bike lights, of course. If you can, deck your bike with battery-operated lights in holiday colors.
You can RSVP on facebook or show up ready to ride.
Is bicycling a seasonal sport? Depends on who you ask. Here’s some excellent winter bike reading: http://www.bicyclinglife.com/Recreation/wintercycling.htm and http://www.icebike.org/ Another benefit is that the racks around town and on campus are nearly empty!

Kudos to Joann Taylor, Rosauers supermarket manager, for installation of new, sturdy bike racks! The racks are located at the front of the store on the right side, safe from cars and shopping carts. Thank you, Joann and Rosauers, for providing a bike-friendly shopping experience!
