Born in Trout Lake, and a long time resident of the Valley, Tommy Anrig, age 93, died on Thursday, August 16. Tommy was well known in these parts as a superb gardener, one who generously shared his flowers and vegetables, and his annual double crop of raspberries! He and wife, Cristobel, were very active members of the grange in Trout Lake, and also participated actively in White Salmon's grange and Senior Center. Our condolences to Cristobel and the Anrig's three children, John W. of Trout Lake, two daughters, Harriet Bachelar and Rhoda English, both of whom live in Portland, and the Anrig's seven grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Services will be held at Gardner Funeral Home in White Salmon, on Saturday, Aug. 25, at 11 a.m.

Yes, it's nearly Labor Day! The weekend, September 1-2-3 brings to a close this year's Saturday Market. How would the Market thrive without our intrepid Betty Schmid and her daughters Sue and Patty. We thank them and all the vendors of quilts and crafts, jams and jewelry, and especially Bea Elmer who never fails to greet us with a smile as we enter. We thank Monica Garrett, 395-2001, and Cora Lee Warner, 395-2561, contact persons for the Great Labor Day Weekend Rummage Sale! Talk about bargains. What you can't use, someone else can. Bring your drop offs to the grange.

Congratulations all the way around, and especially to parents Don and Cora Lee Warner who, this past Saturday, gained a new daughter-in-law, Danielle Craig, as she became the bride of their son, Cody Warner. A perfectly beautiful day for a beautiful wedding! Danielle and Cody will honeymoon in Leavenworth and Port Townsend, enroute to Victoria B.C. Every happiness is wished the newlyweds!

Registration is underway for Trout Lake pre-school. Trout Lake's own Judy Skelton is no stranger to working with pre-schoolers; and she welcomes all three-to-five year olds. If you have questions or wish to register your child, give Judy a call at 395-3669. Pre-school begins on Oct. 1.

We have it straight from Stan Rapp that on a recent trip East, Doug and Matt Deardon refought the epic Civil War Battles of Antietam and Gettysburg on the sites of these historic battlefields -- hands-on history, surely to be remembered. Other activities of the Rapp family, included Rosalyn and Stan's attendance at the national dedication of 'Grey Towers' in Millford, Pa., the ancestral home of Gifford Pinchot, acknowledged by many to be the Father of Forestry. The Stan Rapp's and their extended family also made a group tour of the new Smithsonian exhibit of American Presidents and their First Ladies, in Washington D.C.

We have a pre-announcement about the upcoming 95th Anniversary of Mount Adams Presbyterian Church. A potluck celebration is planned for September, and more information will be forthcoming as plans are finalized.

S. Keran, newswriter.
