I happened to see a post on FaceBook last weekend for a lasagna dinner that was held on Sunday afternoon in the Rosburg Hall. A spur of the moment decision to check it out, was a good one. The event was sponsored by the Wahkiakum Fair Foundation and was a fundraiser to bring a bull riding event to the fairgrounds in July. I must say the lasagna was the best I have eaten in years, and I also bid on a few items in their silent auction, bringing home a cute little music box and just had to purchase some home made blueberry muffins as well. It was an afternoon well spent with good people and delicious food.
This group has an upcoming fundraiser for the same bull riding event, on May 5 at the Skamokawa Fairgrounds. It will be a Mexican dinner with a live auction according to the information I was given. I will get more info in next week’s column.
Happy Birthday to the following celebrants this week: Jayden Ding, Tari Zimmerman, Renee Smith, Chuck Torppa, Maycn McCullough, Lori Dearmore, Faith Penttila, Bob Liabraaten, Amanda Engleson, Sara Wirkkala, Ramona Smith, Glenn Miller and Aaron Varila. Wishing you a perfect day.
Now off to finish my mowing. The yard was looking like a huge hay field before the rain stopped. Enjoy this beautiful sunshine for a couple more days, as it looks like we will see some rain for the weekend. Happy Spring!
