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
