FUND RAISER FOR BO WAGES. In case you haven't heard by now, one of our locals, Bo Wages, has been diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma inside his left kidney and had to have surgery in the middle of last month. The good news is that the surgery was a success, but the healing up and recovering has been another matter. He's been unable to work, so the bills are adding up. In order to help his family in this time of need, a fund raising event has been planned. Everyone is invited to the River Mile 38 Brewery at the Elochoman Slough Marina in Cathlamet on April 20 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. You will be able to take part in a live art auction featuring local artists and enjoy some live music. Enjoy Culinary Creations by Becca and much more. Please mark the date down and help Bo.

BALD EAGLE DAY. Before you know it, it will be July 20th and we’ll be enjoying a great parade, lots of food and vendors on Main street in Cathlamet. The Chamber of Commerce needs a theme for this year’s parade. They are asking for your help in choosing a theme for this year’s festivities. Get those thinking caps on and let them know; just contact the Chamber at their office in Cathlamet or website: or you can give them a call at: 360-795-9996.

FAIRGROUNDS SALE. The second Saturday of the month coming up and so you know what that means: it's Flea Market time in Skamokawa at the Wahkiakum County Fairgrounds.

WELCOME AT BREAKFAST. You are welcome to come to the Skamokawa Grange Hall on Thursdays from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. and enjoy a free breakfast, some coffee and chat with folks from all over the community. If you'd like, bring your own mug and a goodie to share. Donations of items are welcome such as paper plates, coffee, etc. and they truly do appreciate cash donations to help with the cost of the weekly rent. There is also a food pantry inside the hall that you can either donate to or use if you are running short of some food items. This is great place to meet people, help people and take part in your community with your positive actions. All are welcome.

LIBRARY SALE. Many folks wait for this every year, so for the book lovers in our area, you should to be headed to the Cathlamet Library this Friday, April 12th from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, April 13 from Noon to 4 p.m. Money raised from this event will help support the library and with books being very cheap, and cheaper by the bag full, it's a win, win. I understand that there are just boxes and boxes of books for you to check out, so happy hunting!
