The WMCF will be sponsoring, again this year, The Brighton 4th of July Breakfast and Parade. We hope all of you who attended in previous years, will join us for this traditional yearly event. The breakfast will begin serving at 9:00am and the parade will begin about 11:30 am. All are welcome to participate. The WMCF will be holding an open-house at the Lodge after the parade. We welcome all to tour our Lodge and “hang out” there for a while. Take the time to visit the last log lodge at Brighton and learn about the history of Brighton while you are there. There is no charge for this event.

The Italian Dinner at the Lodge fundraiser on July 30, 2011 was a great success. Everyone, about 80 people attended, had a great time with the home cooked pasta, salad, desert, appetizers and drinks. The food service netted over one thousand dollars in donations to the WMCF and the silent auction netted over fifteen hundred dollars from the donated auctioned items. Those of you who missed it still have the opportunity to attend the Dutch Oven Cook Out at the Lodge in September (see the What’s Happening Page) to give your donations to preserve the WMC Lodge or you can just send them in to the WMCF.
The Big Cottonwood Breakfast and Parade at Brighton this year was co-sponsored by the WMCF and the Big Cottonwood Canyon Association. The event was well attended even with the threat of rain. the WMCF was able to receive over thirteen hundred dollars in donations for the event. We will be sponsoring this event again next year.
The Salt Lake Tribune has an article about the transfer of the Lodge from the Wasatch Mountain Club to the Wasatch Mountain Club Foundation.
The plan is make the lodge available to the public through open houses, reservations for scheduled events, and donations of use time to eligible charitable and educational organizations. Individuals and community organizations will be able to schedule private events at the lodge with payment of a cost-based fee.
