Distinguished visitor
What? LC vs Mead football game at Joe Albi Stadium.

Why? to greet Joe Albi's daughter Jaclyn Albi Flaherty and Jaclyn's 2 daughters who are coming in from the East Coast. Jaclyn has not seen the statue of 'Joe Fan' yet so that is where we are going to gather - southwest corner of the stadium.

When? Friday, Sept 7th at 7:30 pm. The game begins at 8:00 pm but we are going to have our get-together between 7:30 pm and 8:00 pm before the game. You could also go to the 5:15 pm game between Mount Spokane and NC and then come over and join us at 7:30.

How much? Game tickets are $6.00 at the door, $4.00 for children (we will look into a group rate if we know how many are attending).

Who? Any relative/friend of the Albi family, also 'Friends of Joe Albi' and supporters of Albi Stadium.

What else? Mayor Hession, if available, will present a Key to the City to Jaclyn.

Questions or suggestions? call Paul H at 475-4474 or Jim at 448-7614.
Albi Complex and Pools Bond
As many of you may know, the Spokane City Council approved a measure to send a 40+ million bond to the people for their decision this Fall. The bond includes about $7 million to add to an existing $4 million to accomplish phase 1 of the Albi Sports & Recreation Complex (5-field lighted softball, 19 new soccer fields of various sizes, a baseball field, skate park, BMX bicycle park, playground, concessions, bathrooms, and paved parking. The bond is great for children! It includes a new pool for the northwest part of town and repairs or replacement of 5 other Spokane pools. All good. but at a cost to the stadium of a significant loss of parking. Also included in the bond is a protective tarp to cover the artificial turf so concerts and other events can be held in Albi Stadium! (about $75,000) We urge Spokane voters to support the bond. Please contact Paul or Jim with any questions. Your moral support has kept us going. The Open House we held last Saturday did cost more than anticipated. Donations of any amount would be appreciated. Write checks to the 'Friends of Joe Albi', 6121 N Buffalo, Spokane, WA 99205. Thanks for being a 'Friend of Joe Albi'! Paul Hyndman for Jim Albi
OPEN HOUSE Results
OPEN HOUSE at ALBI STADIUM! Saturday, Aug 11th from Noon to 7:00 PM About 100 - 120 people stopped by and met with us. Thanks to the Belton Racing Team with their race car #5, CenterPlate for the food, SYSA and Skyhawks for the field games & Tshirts, Kiwanis for Tshirts and support, Clearwater Music (near the Y) for their music and instruments for kids to try, and Councilman Crow for the Phase 1 Albi Complex map and explainations. Although attendance was low, the Open House was successful. Many of the City Council and mayoral candidates saw the stadium up close and were impressed favorably. Several neighbors were supportive of the proposed improvements north of the stadium. We talked with two gentlemen who were interested in holding events at Albi Stadium. We will pursue these opportunities - on would involve an event of 15,000 to 20,000 people. THANKS for YOUR SUPPORT! Jim & Paul
