Kaslo Trailblazers 2010 Fall Update WOW! A milestone has been reached by the Kaslo Trailblazers Society thanks to the generosity of residents and visitors; 100 bridge plaques on the future 5th Street suspension bridge have been sponsored! In celebration a name was randomly drawn from those first 100 sponsors, and congratulations go to the Frouws family of Kaslo! They have won a $60 gift certificate generously donated by the Kaslo Hotel and Brew Pub. We have raised $40,000 towards the new bridge, which will close the Kaslo River Trail loop when completed. We would like this to be a UNITY bridge with bridge plaques from all over the world. Most provinces are now represented together with some states as well as England. With your help we hope to increase out-of-country representation. Please visit our website at www.kaslotrailblazers.org and click on “Help us Build the 5th St. Suspension Bridge� for more information. You can download the PDF letter “About Bridge Sponsorship� to give to friends and family in Canada and internationally, or point them to our site. The Trailblazers kicked off their season with a BBQ in early June at the Kaslo Saturday Market. Work parties continued throughout the summer with additional guard rails installed, retaining walls built and gravel distributed. Thank you to the walkers who are taking bags of gravel with them. This has moved approximately 5 cubic yards of gravel for
