This year’s Fifth Annual Save Kilarc Community Picnic on Sunday, Aug. 19, 2012 will fea-ture an update by Kelly Sackheim of KC Hydro about what has been going on behind the scenes to save the popular fishing spot for future generations. Sackheim plans to speak at 12 noon in the Kilarc Reservoir picnic area and then lead interested parties on a short walk along the Kilarc Canal, which is the current focus of efforts to block Pacific Gas and Electric Company from dismantling the facility. The gathering will also be a chance to remember and honor long-time Whitmore resident and Save Kilarc Committee founder Glenn Dye who passed away on May 6, 2012 after moving to Iowa. Participants may either bring their own picnic lunches or buy hot dogs from the Whitmore School Parents Club; they may also bring fishing poles to try their skills against Kilarc’s wiley trout, if they are so inclined. For more information, call Sackheim at 916-962-2271 or e-mail her at
