My husband, Jim, and Ron Loomis are in charge of the vintage equipment that is shown annually at the fair. Ron does 99 percent of the work and Jim helps with what he can. This year, Ron has put together a really good show of early logging equipment. Be sure and stop by and see the display. There are lots of old tractors, engines and other things to see and enjoy looking at.
Myrna Manier, Stephanie Parson, Joann McCrary and many others had a very successful rummage sale on Friday and Saturday at the Satsop Methodist Church. All the money made at the rummage sale will be used for the projects for the women and children in Bolivia. Thanks to everyone who help support their mission.
Last Saturday, Dugan and Norene Dotson and Jim and I drove to Olympia to Ron and Judy Pierce’s home for the annual Milk-Can-Stew Dinner. Cliff and Sunny Cotey, from Allyn, and Jim and Betty Hoing, from Olympia, also attended. It was a beautiful night to enjoy sitting out on the deck looking over the water and visiting with friends and enjoying a wonderful dinner followed by wild blackberry cobbler. A great evening. I also went next door and visited with Dan and Carleen Glenn for a short time. Dan, Carleen and I graduated together in ‘59 from Elma High School.
On Sunday, Pastor K and her husband, Dick, served breakfast at the Satsop Methodist Church. Following breakfast, Pastor K led the service.. Cadie Nuxoll lit the candles. Prayers were asked for the family of Larry Quinn. Prayers for the families of the three young men from Montesano who were fishing and their boat overturned. Prayers are needed for healing for Patty Bosler who fell and broke her hip. The doctors had to do a complete hip replacement. Joys shared: Cadie Nuxoll finished her six-week swimming lessons successfully. Rose Patton enjoyed visiting with Pastor Wayne Schneider, who is now at the Ocean Shores Methodist Church. Dalton Combs and Rose Patton collected the offering.
By the time you read this on Wednesday or Thursday, the fair will be running and I will be busy working in the information booth. If I am not there, I will be helping to stamp the passport books at the vintage equipment area. Hope to see you at the fair.
The Satsop School Reunion is coming in September. Call Barb Tarman for more information and I will have more information on the reunion in next week’s news.
My thought for the week: “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
