      The City of DuPont has closed the Sequalitchew Creek trail portion of
      the Boyhood Memories walk (#0193). There was a bear siting this
      afternoon. The top half of the walk is still available. We will let you
      know when the trail reopens.

      our YREs. The two events are:

      Blvd., but it will move about 2 blocks east of the old location. The new
      address is:
      8302 E. Mill Plain Blvd.
      The effective date of the relocation is July 18, 2013.
