Ice cream social at library Thursday

Hear's Goldendale


Another long weekend for events will be going on around Goldendale next week. Pack your lawn chairs in the car because you will need them at all these events.

Thursday, Aug. 15, is the annual Goldendale Library Ice Cream Social beginning at 6:30 p.m. on the lawn. Bring your chair or blanket and a sun hat so that you will be comfortable while enjoying the cake, ice cream, music and entertainment.

Friday is a big day for the Klickitat County Senior Citizens. The yearly picnic will be held at Daubenspeck Park in Bingen. Lunch will begin at noon. Food, drinks and place settings will be provided by Senior Services. Again, bring your lawn chairs. If you are going, please call the senior center at 773-3060 as they need to know the head count so there will be enough food provided. And if you need a ride, call the same number.

On Saturday, Aug. 17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 18, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., head on down to Maryhill Museum with your lawn chairs to the Art Festival. There will be many artists exhibiting their work which will be for sale, food vendors and live music and shade.

Maryhill Museum is free for Klickitat County residents Aug. 17 and 18, as well as Benton, Franklin, Skamania, Walla Walla and Columbia counties in Washington State. In Oregon,the free counties for this weekend are Hood River, Jeffferson, Wasco, Sherman, and Gilliam counties.
