Don't miss National Night Out


I know I sometimes repeat myself, but a teacher once told me that the fastest way to memorize something is through repetition, so I have to repeat to remind you of a few things.

Don’t forget about the family fun night coordinated by the local KLASAC and local law enforcement when they bring you National Night Out, set for this Aug. 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. They are very excited to be working together this year to entertain the family with games and food—all free. So come on out and join the fun at the park.

Oh, yes. And the First Saturday Lions Breakfast is coming up. It falls on Aug. 3, with doors opening at 7 a.m. and serving until 10 a.m.. It’s a good hearty breakfast for a small fee, and you get to visit with a room full of friends who you may only get to see once a month. They’ll be there, saving a chair for you.

And I would be amiss if I didn’t encourage you to visit the Twin Bridges Museum. It is open every Saturday from noon to 5 p.m., now through September.

Please be careful with anything that may start a fire, no matter how safe it may seem. Keep a close watch on lawn mowers, chainsaws, any kind of machinery that may shoot sparks, or campfires that look like they are out but still have live embers lurking beneath the ashes. This looks to be another devastating few months before we reach a steady rainfall, so keep your emergency box handy! If you are unsure of what to put in one, contact the fire department, and they will be happy to assist you.

Oh, and I almost forgot—the Klickitat County Fair is just a month away, Aug. 22 – 25. It’s great fun to enter items in the fair, to be judged and honored with ribbons then get praise from your family and friends. Take one of those jars of canned goods out of the cupboard, that painting you painted this year, matt that photograph, bake a cake or cookies, pick a flower from your garden and put it in a mason jar. Choose the biggest vegetable out of your garden or the best quilt you’ve sewn—whatever your talent is, share it. You might not think your talents are worthy, but the judges might surprise you. Plus, it makes the fair much more interesting and exciting; there’s something for everyone. And yes, I can’t mention the fair without a word about those delicious curly fries!
