One of our greatest freedoms in this country is our ability to vote. With the general election fast approaching, I would hope that every eligible voter will do so. Sometimes it is good to talk with a candidate and get their views on issues and we have a great opportunity to do that on October 9. The Grays River Grange #124 will host a Candidate’s Forum on that Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the Grange Hall on SR 4 in Grays River.
Please join in welcoming the candidates, speaking with them and then, please vote in November.
If you don’t already have your tickets for the 11th Annual Covered Bridge Dinner, you may want to get them as soon as possible as there is a limited number being sold. The dinner will take place on October 6 at 4:30 p.m., inside the Grays River Covered Bridge.
Regular admission tickets can be purchased for $35 and Grand American (all veterans and seniors 72 and older) tickets are $25. They are available at the Bank of the Pacific in Cathlamet and Naselle or at the WSU Extension Office on River Street in Cathlamet.
For more information, please call 360 795-3278 or check the website: wahkiakum.wsu.edu.
