Recent trips to Olympia and our Labor Day weekend plans made for some fun times.
We spent a relaxing four days camped on the Satsop River at Jim and Joann Hliboki’s campground over Labor Day weekend. This Labor Day we only had six families camped for the weekend, but did have lots of others come by to visit and eat. The weather was perfect. It’s always fun to get away for a few days to relax, visit with friends, and have time to read a good book.
Bob Borden and Bill and Julie Zwarun enjoyed going to the Ellensburg Rodeo over the Labor Day weekend. Bob and Bill try to attend that rodeo every year.
Ed and Jean Comfort and their daughters, Sherri Russell and Julie Hunt and their families, have returned from a fun family vacation to California.
On Sunday, Aug. 25 at the Satsop Methodist Church, Joyce Anderson was baptized and joined the church. Lolita Schneider, Brett Demond and Lonnie Crumley transferred their membership to the Satsop Methodist Church. Pastor K led the Sunday Service. Cadie Nuxoll and Oliver Vandewark lit the candles. Ed Comfort, Rose Pierce and Pastor K put coins in for their birthdays. I put coins in for my birthday and son and daughter-in-law, Jim and Shawn Borden’s birthdays. Pastor K read the scriptures. Joys shared: Pastor K for having her daughter and her friend joining her at church on Sunday. Mark and Francine Carpenter on birth of a great-grandson, Benjamin. School starting (Remember to slow down at schools and watch out for the little ones crossing streets.) Prayers were asked for Colleen Tadlock and Clark Caffall. Please keep these families in your prayers for the loss of a loved one. Family of Don Bohren, Lexie Guzman and Craig Thiessen. Prayers for Peace. The offering was collected by Mark Carpenter and Dalton Combs.
Mark this date down: 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Oct.15. This is the Satsop Methodist Church Fall Roast Beef Dinner and Bazaar.
On Sunday afternoon, many of us enjoyed the beautiful weather, good food and meeting and talking with people who had attended the Satsop School as they were growing up. The potluck was held in the covered play area at the school and I am sure many could remember the fun days they played there when it was raining. Dennis Roberts probably traveled the farthest to attend, coming over from Eastern Washington. Juanita Robinson Combes attended for the first time. It was good to see many of the friends my kids played with and see them now all grown up. Thanks to Barb Tarman for putting this reunion together and I hope to see more graduates from the Satsop grade school in two years at the next reunion.
My thought for the week: “The greatest sweetener of human life is friendship.”
