Leave it as it is. You cannot improve on it. The ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it. What you can do is to keep it for your children, your children’s children, and for all who come after you, as the one sight which every American should see.

IT’S HERE! Our 2nd Tuesday Service Project! Community School Food Pantry!!
This week, Boise Metro Rotarians will assemble snack bags for Community Schools (including Garfield Elementary) to distribute to Homeless and Low-Income Students.
This snack bag assembly project can be done in your own home. See instructions in the next paragraph. For those who want a little Rotary fellowship, we already have 4 volunteers signed up (John Biggs, Will Ellsworth, Cahill Jones, and Jeff Larsen). We have room for 2 to 4 more to join us on Tuesday, February 9th at noon on Boise Plaza 5th Floor (1111 W. Jefferson). Remember to respect indoor Covid protocols of mask wearing and social distancing. There is a drop off box in the lobby of the Boise Plaza for finished snack bags that you assembled at home. Or contact Jeff Larsen (208-870-7481 to arrange a pick up.
