I had the pleasure of attending my first Valentines Smorgasbord in Naselle last Sunday, along with my sister and two grandsons. Wow, what a spread. It was all so delicious, and I got to visit with lots of folks from both sides of the county.
Are you ready? February Open Mic Music Night with Wahkiakum Vibes and friends will be held in the Skamokawa Grange #425 on Sunday. If you are a singer or a musician and would like to join in with the group, you can sign up at 2:45 p.m. or you can just enjoy the show and listen (probably with a little toe tapping as well). Open Mic starts at 3 p.m., followed by a jam session. Lots of folks have been participating in the last few events and some great music has been enjoyed by all the attendees.
This is a free event but donations to the Skamokawa Grange #425 are always appreciated, and the coffee is always on. Come on out and listen or participate in a real down home afternoon of entertainment.
The West End Food Pantry is located in the north end of the Grays River Valley Center at Johnson Park and is open weekly on Thursdays 1-5 p.m.
The board is looking for new board members and volunteers to help out on a regular basis, so if you have a few hours to spare and wish to help out your community in a meaningful way, please contact Shonda Ware or Suzie Whalen.
Donations to the pantry can be taken to the center during open hours and cash donations are also accepted to help with shortages of different items. If you have a rice cooker, slow cooker or crock pot that is in good working order, they will also accept those items and they will be passed on to a family who can use them.
They always need canned meats, fruits and veggies, dry cereals, peanut butter and jelly, pasta, and easily prepared boxed items such as mac and cheese, personal hygiene items, cleaning/laundry supplies and even pet food for those families with animals.
It looks like the road to Longview will be a little slow going for the next few weeks as repairs are scheduled to be in progress around the slide area near Germany Creek. So, if you are traveling that direction, add a little extra time to compensate.
Happy Birthday to the following celebrants this week: Emma Mae Sue Fauver, Sherrill Hartline, Frieda Footh, Carol Ross, Wayne Erickson, Kayse Rogers, Junea Brannon, Paul Footh, Charlie Gross, Nate Engelson, Deanna Wilson, Audrey Ullakko, Renee Pitts and Rhonda Warra. Wishing each of you a perfect day.
A special Happy Anniversary to my neighbors, John and Frieda Footh. Here’s to many more celebrations together.
