"Shred Day" coming Saturday, April 22

After Tax Day, you may want to clean house of no-longer-needed financial records.
To help, and in keeping with its recent practice, the Grand Coulee Dam Rotary Club will offer its biannual Shred Day service, when you can get rid of all those records and watch as a big truck double shreds them in bulk.
The event will take place at North Dam Park by the Gehrke Windmills on April 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. - or until the truck is full.
The flow of traffic should start at the road by North Dam and exit past the windmill parking area.
Rotarians will be there to greet you, then put your unwanted paper records in bins that are then lifted up mechanically and dumped into a big shedder on a truck, like those that perform the same service for businesses and government agencies that need to be sure confidential records are destroyed when no longer needed.
The service is free, and the club will offer ways to give donations to help support its efforts, which include local community service projects and worldwide, international efforts - everything from roadside litter cleanups to tackling drinking water problems to curing disease to improving ballfields, or even helping to get Lake Roosevelt Schools built.
