News from Naselle:
Congratulations to the Lady Comet volleyball team on your seventh place finish in the state finals. Great accomplishment from a fantastic team. Go Comets!
On Saturday, the Naselle football team will play Lyle at Wishram in a state playoff game. Start time is 4 p.m.
State prices are in effect - $10 for adults and students without ASB cards, $7 for seniors and students with ASB cards, $7 for all students 6 to 12 years of age. Go Comets!
Students will be released early today and tomorrow for fall parent-teacher conferences.
The Naselle-Grays River Valley School Board will meet for their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. These meetings are open, and the public is encouraged to attend.
On Friday, the annual Turkey Bingo will take place in the Naselle School Commons. Bring the family for dinner and bingo prizes. The fun begins at 5 p.m.
Students will be released early on Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. for Thanksgiving Break. They will return to class on Monday, the 26th.
I hope everyone who attended the annual Veterans Day Pancake Breakfast enjoyed it as much as my family did. Once again the American Legion did their thing to make this event a positive and delicious time with friends and family in honor of all our men and women in uniform, and in recognizing past veterans. Thank you once again for your service to country and community.
Just a heads up for those of you who wish to purchase tickets to the upcoming Crab and Oyster Feed sponsored by the American Legion Deep River Post #111, on January 26, 2019. Tickets are available now. Don’t wait too long as this is a sell-out event every year and only 200 tickets will be sold. Admission is $28 per person and you will be treated to crab, oysters, baked beans, potato salad, cole slaw and garlic bread.
Following dinner there will be a raffle drawing which always includes some wonderful prizes including a gun. And to top off a fantastic evening, live music and a dance. Word of advice--brush up on your chicken dance!
Another reminder that the Wahkiakum County Fair Foundation will hold its annual holiday wreath, swag and center piece sale over the next few weeks. The dates and locations where they will be available are as follows: November 16 during Fair Board Bingo at the Fairgrounds; November 17 at the St. James Holiday Bazaar; November 24 at the Cathlamet Tree Lighting Ceremony, Cathlamet Hotel; December 1 at the Fair Bazaar on the Fairgrounds, and December 8 at the Fairgrounds Flea Market.
The foundation will also sponsor a Decorated Christmas Tree Auction during the November and December Flea Markets and Fair Bingo. Bake sales will also take place at these events.
If you enjoyed events like last year’s Bull Riding Competition, these are the folks to thank. They put in a lot of time and effort to bring new, fun things to our little fairgrounds. Let’s support their efforts, and thank them for doing a great job.
Next week is Thanksgiving, and I’m sure that the West End Food Pantry could use more of everything to make up a Thanksgiving meal for a local family. I don’t know how many baskets will be going out this year but when you are shopping for your own dinner, why not pick up a few extra things to donate to the pantry. If you prefer, you can make a monetary donation to the Pantry by mailing it to: PO Box 55, Rosburg, WA 98643 and your tax deductible receipt will be mailed to you.
If you have a few hours of time to spare, the pantry is in dire need of a few more volunteers. Please contact Shonda Ware if you can help out.
