Crab & Oyster Feed at Norse Hall on Saturday

Flea market to be held at Fairgrounds Saturday

Jam session at Skamokawa Grange on Sunday afternoon

Bob Pyle reading and book signing Saturday

Last Flea Market of year to be held this Saturday

Lions Club Walk-n-Knock to be held this Saturday

Another bear sighting in Skamokawa area
