Trout Lake is a beautiful valley for weddings. Wedding bells have been ringing for many of our young couples. For those who wish an outdoor wedding there are wedding gardens and farms. Spring sunshine always invites everyone outdoors.

Our neighbors Carol and Bill Anderson have been busy as beavers painting their attractive house and preparing for their son Micah's wedding to Carissa Duke.

The Dukes, also our neighbors, were equally as busy transforming the gym at Jonah Ministries into a charming wedding facility. Sunday, May 19, Micah and Carissa were married at Jonah Ministries. Pastor Dee Duke performed the ceremony, witnessed by many friends and neighbors.

On May 18, there were two other weddings in Trout Lake - the Reynolds family; and a wedding at The Farm where Priscilla Allaway married Jebodiah Bristow-Hanna. Our community extends its congratulations to all of these newlyweds.

Tobin Rummell is in Romania participating in the Northwest Medical Teams and George Fox University project of building orphanages. It is good that so many of our youth have goals that help this world become a better place.

Dickey Farms will be bringing fresh vegetables to the Trout Lake General Store beginning this Friday, May 14, from 4 to 7 p.m. Come out and get some of these healthy veggies for your salads and meals. Dickey Farms plan to bring produce each Friday.

Is there another newswriter out there? Terry and I have asked this question before. We do our best but we could have even more coverage. Perhaps you would like to write on just one subject as a guest writer. Our guest writer Laurie West suggested that everyone has a story. Jerry Duke, as a student writer, told us about the band. A bonus is having our curiosity satisfied.

As I watched Carly and Dave Tipton build their Trout Lake Motel, I was eager to see the units. I called them up and asked for a tour. The motel opened for business on Friday, May 17. With the old wagon out front and the natural log decor it blends beautifully with our Mt. Adams. Dave showed Ray and me one of the spacious rooms. There is a star constellation on the ceiling of each room so you can go to sleep looking at the stars. A novel idea. They also plan to serve a continental breakfast in their cheerful dining area. If you are curious like us and would like a neighborly tour call them up at 395-2532.

And put your thinking cap on and think of who you know who likes to write. Maybe they just need to be asked. Also keep sending Terry and me your Trout Lake News.

Thanks. Newswriter Sandi Thygesen
