Summer is almost here, and local residents are invited to celebrate the season and the reopening of the Galena Lodge at the fifth annual Friends of Galena and the Trails Summer Benefit Barbecue this Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. On Sunday, the lodge will hold a Father's Day brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

"We're ready. In fact were in better shape than we have been in years past," said Don Shepler, who along with Erin Zell operates Galena Lodge. "We're looking forward to another exciting season this summer. It's always nice to be able to thank the community that makes this possible."

The Blaine County Recreation District and the Galena Lodge & Trails Advisory Council sponsor the event and lend their staff to "flip burgers and pour drinks," said district Executive Director Wally Morgus.

"This event is not so much a fundraiser as it is a community appreciation event,"

Morgus said.

The $12 fee for Saturday's event includes the barbecue and non-alcoholic drinks. All proceeds will go to help sustain Galena Lodge and the North Valley Trails. The Father's Day brunch will feature live music by Bruce Innes and cost $19.50 for adults and $10 for kids 12 and under.

Summer plans for Galena Lodge, located 24 miles north of Ketchum, include weekly barbecues, a kids camp, Two-wheel Tuesdays (bike clinics and food), Sunday music on the deck with Bruce Innes, Summer Dining Series and the Galena Grinder bike race.
