The Trout Lake Community Council is seeking an appointee to fill a vacancy on the council.

The term would run through December, 2002. Election to a full-three year term can be sought at the November election. The council meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 8 p.m. in the Trout Lake Grange, except July and August.

Eligibility to the normally elected nine member board requires Trout Lake Valley residency of at least a year. The Trout Lake Community Council periodically updates the Trout Lake Community Action Plan, provides input to Klickitat County on land use issues, and makes recommendations on local projects for Klickitat County Economic Development funding.

For further information, contact chairperson Ken BeLieu at 395-2712 or member Jim White at 395-2585.

Our Trout Lake Advanced Band did well at the nation wide festival, "Music In The Parks." Band members earned three trophies on the band trip to the San Francisco area. The first award, ESPIRIT de CORPS was given to students of high character and achievement. The Jazz Ensemble earned first place and the Concert Band earned second place. Everyone had a good time playing for the audience of bands in the evening and touring San Francisco during the day. They wish to thank the community for their support.

Spring is here at last. Yet May is still a month of surprises, a little snow last week and an abundance of colorful flowers. Myself and our nearby neighbors wish to thank the creative children who surprised us with May flowers. The door bell rang and there on the porch was a colorful bouquet. This delightful surprise brings back memories of when our children made colored paper baskets, which they filled with flowers, and delivered anonymously to our neighbors. Such fun!

Trout Lake School now has a track thanks to the volunteer labor of Robert Schmid who spent hours and hours planning and laying it out along with the help of Doug Deardon and Jeff Agar. Their volunteer labor made it possible for Trout Lake School to have a track meet. The first track meet held at Trout Lake School went well.
