Annual Fall Fling set for Oct. 24


It’s always interesting to see the seasonal decorations in and near the old wagon at the intersection of Highway 141 and the southern end of Sunnyside Road. This month in honor of harvest and fall there are two scarecrow farmers who have apparently just placed an enormous prize winning size pumpkin in the wagon which is bedecked with corn shocks. Much thanks to the folks who take their time to brighten our trips.

Also have neglected to mention that the welcome to Trout Lake sign, located on Highway 141 just north of the school is back in place and it looks very spiffy with its new coat of varnish and repairs. It gives the town some class.

The TLC senior dinner is on Friday, Oct. 9, in the multipurpose room at the school. The doors open for socializing at 4:30 p.m. Dinner is served at 5:30 p.m. All are welcome. Representatives from Klickitat County Senior Services will be there to answer questions about Medicare since the open enrollment period is approaching.

On Oct. 24 the Fall Fling will be held at the school from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. This is the annual school music department spaghetti dinner and concert fundraiser. Tickets can be purchased from band members or at the door. Food is always good and the music enjoyable. Come out and help support the school.

The October Fest, a fundraiser put on by the Community Foundation for its scholarship fund, held last Saturday was very well attended. The brats were tasty as were the chocolate chip cookies. Also there was potato salad, beans, various kinds of pie and cider pressing. It’s interesting how much effort it takes to produce a glass of cider. If the price reflected the work necessary, no one would be able to afford it! All in all it was a very pleasant event. I hope the Foundation made money.

The Community Foundation Labor Day Rummage Sale raised more than $21,000 this year despite the rain and reduced numbers of visitors to the area. Thanks to all who supported this effort to raise money for scholarships for the students in Trout Lake School.

Bethany Putman a senior in the high school has a senior project to create 70 knit hats, scarves, and mittens for students in the school who need them for the winter and will contribute items to the Christmas baskets. Bethany is hoping that local knitters and crocheters will help her achieve her goal. She would also like donations of left over yarn. Donations of yarn can be dropped off at the school before Nov. 1 marked for the “Hatbox.” If you wish to help Bethany please contact the school to leave your name and contact info.
