Invite for Meadow Rover Training

Greetings! The time is close at hand for Meadow Rover Training. We are excited to get you all up and running for the summer. Please find the agenda below. It is a jam-packed day and hope the addition of break out sessions will be of interest to you seasoned Rovers. We will be in the Longmire community building. If you turn into the housing area at Longmire and follow the road up and over the bridge you will eventually come to the Community Building. Please bring a sack lunch. We will have coffee, however we are asking you to help us stay green and bring your own mug.

If you have questions please call Erin Whittaker at 360.569.2211 x 3414, or email her at
