facebook page

Just wanted to remind everyone about our new Face Book page. We have started an all new Face Book page last year and wanted to remind the members. If you go to Ruby Creek Conservation and Recreation Club in the search engine of Face Book you should be able to find us. Also if you like it please hit the like tab. This is all new so please have patience, it’s a work in progress. Thank You.


A recent windstorm/tornado passed through the area at the beginning of September. Many trees in the area were uprooted, and here is a couple of pictures of damage on the North Country Trail.

Notice the guy in the lower left corner piloting the drone that took this shot. You can also make out the cleared trail from the first picture.

Furnace Crisis

One of the three hanging furnaces in the clubhouse has been cranky the last few years. It needed a new thermocoupler almost yearly and developed a small leak near the pilot light. A furnace repair man was called in and during the initial inspection found several small cracks in the heat exchanger.This is bad.

It means the heater is leaking exhaust gases into the room. The heat exchanger in not repairable and so the furnace, after 20 years. has come to the end of its’ life.

After inspecting the other two furnaces cracks were found in their heat exchangers also. About the worse outcome we could have gotten.

Three new heaters were ordered and hopefully will be installed before the first rental of the season but we’re cutting it close, and the way this spring has been a cold clubhouse in not an option. Needless to say this is blowing a huge hole in our budget, thankfully we’re able to cover it with out borrowing any money, but expect some fundraisers and donation requests to keep the heat on.

Amazon Smile

We’ve registered as a non-profit with Amazon Smile, which means we could receive .05% of any purchases made with RCCRC as the designated recipient.

It’s just a little more work than the usual Amazon transaction, but here is how it’s done.

Go to Smile.Amazon.com , It looks just like the regular Amazon. When you’re ready to check out you’ll be given the choice of who you want to donate to. We’re registered as “Ruby Creek Conservation and Recreation Club”. It will also appear on a line below the search box.

And that’s it, everything else is the same as the regular Amazon experience. Just make sure you go to Smile.Amazon.com
