Coming Events Wahkiakum Community Center in Cathlamet:


On March 19, 10 a.m. to noon, we will have a presentation on diabetic foot care and footwear here at the Community Center. If you are diabetic and have insurance, Medicare or on a Washington funded Medicaid plan, then the cost of shoes from Priority Footwear is covered. Please stop by for a free foot screening and receive a free pair of diabetic socks. Snacks provided.

On March 21, 2-4 p.m., Wahkiakum Outdoors will host a presentation on honey bees and beekeeping by guest speaker Bill Holmes, president of the Cowlitz Bee Keepers Association. The presentation will take place at The Hope Center – previously known as the Congregational Church on South 3rd and Maple streets. Last month’s presentation by Andrew Emlen on pelicans which inhabit the Lower Columbia River region was cancelled because of weather but is rescheduled for May. Stay tuned to The Eagle and the Wahkiakum Community Center Facebook page for details.

On March 22, 10 a.m. to noon, the community center will host a free seed exchange sponsored by the Master Gardeners. Bring viable seeds to exchange with other gardeners. Prior to the event we are accepting any extra packets (even opened packages are okay) of seeds, any tubers, bulbs, plant starts, etc. you think gardeners might be interested in and you can spare. Any gardening tools you want to get out of your garage and are still in good condition would be welcome.

This Friday’s movie is rated PG-13. It is an epic adult drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis "Louie" Zamperini who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII, only to be caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. The movie starts at 7 p.m., and popcorn is free. You are also welcome to bring your own snacks.
