National Night Out has great turnout


August 15, 2018

Sheila Crapper from KLASAC and Lyle School says, “Just had our third annual National Night Out. We had a great turnout, considering the heat. We would like to thank all of the local businesses and community members that donated and participated in National Night Out, we couldn’t do it without them. Everyone enjoyed the great food. Karen and Vernon did a great job on that. Sheriff Songer and some of the Posse members were present, along with Lyle Fire Department and Klickitat Fire Department. Everyone enjoyed water games, music, food and visiting with their friends and neighbors. Thanks to everyone involved and everyone who attended. We look forward to next year!”

Are you experiencing difficulty holding your balance on one foot while stepping into a pair of jeans? Or having to hold on to furniture to do so? The older we get, falling is a main issue that can be minimized by a few hours of training. Erica Owen-McCann is offering a new yoga class on the deck behind the Memaloose tasting room at 34 State Street, every Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. The class will run through Sept. 15.

I accepted the personal invitation to Dave Sauter’s Kick Off Campaign luncheon on Saturday. Seeing the magnitude of attendees, he should have no problem keeping his Commissioner’s title.

Oh, my goodness—I’ve been brain dead about reminding you of the upcoming Klickitat County Fair! Look for their 75th Anniversary becoming their best year ever, and it all happens Thursday through Sunday, Aug. 23 to 26, with the kickoff barbecue dinner at 5 p.m. opening day. I know so many of you talented readers have hobbies that produce amazing things that you should share with the rest of us. It costs you nothing to enter any item, whether it be crafts, photography, sewing, cooking, flowers, and the list goes on. It is what makes the fair interesting and fun—besides the rodeo, live entertainment, the agriculture and livestock. Gosh, there’s certainly something for everyone—and it’s almost here! Oh, and I almost forgot the curly fries!

I’ve been enjoying the some-what cooler days, but my yard is toast, literally. It’s crunchy and the same color! Oh well, like the old saying goes, “God and the rain will bring it back.”
