The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

ABATE Cruise-in Aug. 18 to benefit New Hope Farms

Hear's Goldendale


The time has come once again for the town of Goldendale and the surrounding residents to come together with “Community Unity.” The Mile Marker 28 fire that began on Wednesday, July 24, along U.S. Highway 97 has been getting some disagreeable weather. But with all the resources we have, more than 1,200 firefighters who are working hard at trying to contain over 20,000 acres as I am writing this column. The Goldendale community went through this same thing almost two years ago for the Monastery Fire, which started in almost the same exact area. Families are on different levels of notification with some told to prepare to leave if the fire gets any closer and others told to leave their home now. Another inconvenience is having Highway 97 closed for close to a week now. We do appreciate everything the firemen do and a giant thank you goes out to all involved in making the Goldendale, Bickleton, and Cleveland areas safer places.

The Klickitat County Fair is on its way, happening at the Klickitat County Fairgrounds from Aug. 22 through 25. Cheyenne Rosander is our Klickitat County Fair queen this year, with the theme of “Let’s Stirrup Some Memories.”

It’s time for another Cruise-In coming up on Aug. 18. A.B.A.T.E. and the Masonic Lodge are putting on a Spaghetti Dinner and All-Vehicle Cruise-In with all profits going to New Hope Farms. You can get your tickets at the Goldendale Chamber for $20.

I was wondering how a beer and wine fest would go over here in Goldendale. I heard that with one micro-brewery represented at this year’s Bluegrass Festival for the first time, it was well received.
