Flea market at fair grounds this Saturday

Flea Market at Fairgrounds and music at Grange Hall

April is a busy month in the Wahkiakum area

Open mic Saturday at Skamokawa Grange Hall

SON breakfast, music at Duffy's for St. Paddy's Day

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

NIPPY BEGINNING--We went from the 40s and 50s right down into the nippy upper 20s at the beginning of this week in West Valley, with the likelihood of it dropping down into the lower 20s by the time you read this, so I do hope you had those pipes...
