The Wall That Heals


August 16, 2017

Two weeks from today—Aug. 30— the Wall That Heals will roll into Goldendale and be erected at the fairgrounds. Volunteers canvassed the fairgrounds last week to get a visual picture of where the Wall, and the travelling education center will be set up.

Grounds workers and volunteers will have a big clean-up job in a short two-day period because the Klickitat County Fair ends on Aug. 27 and the Wall arriving three days later. A site visit by a representative of the Wall will come on Aug. 29 to see that things are ready to go.

Masonic Lodge Chairman Scott Robinson, who is spearheading the coordination and promotion of the event, says that he is having “no issues, only challenges” that he has been taking care of to pull off this event.

“Things are moving along really smoothly and everyone has come together. The cooperation has been great.” Robinson said. “The thing that concerns me is that we really don’t know how many people will show up, it could be a lot.”

Robinson is also busy with advertising the event as he is scheduled to do a radio interview with KDOL in The Dalles and possibly others. Other radio spots will be running in many regional cities like Yakima, Pendleton, Walla Walla, Hermiston and Portland.

“Everyone I’ve talked to thinks this is a great story,” Robinson said. “But we still want to get the word out as much as we can.”
