Come to the Trout Lake Fair Events 2003 which will begin with a Community Potluck Social on Friday, Aug. 1, at , 6 p.m. at Elk Meadows RV Park. Many thanks to John and Martha Hylton for their generous offering for our community to use their park. Browse through the Trout Lake Fair 2003 booklet you received in the mail, for more details. Doug Anderson will lead a Sing-a-Long. There will also be a Talent Show. If you want to be in the show call Doug at 395-3611. You can also go to the Trout Lake Post Office and view all of the posters announcing various events.

On Saturday, you won't have to make breakfast. You can attend the Fireman's Breakfast at the Trout Lake School multi-purpose room from 6:30 until 10 a.m. Those delicious and tasty huckleberry pancakes will be served again. Come early to get fueled up for the one mile Fun Run or the 5K and 10K runs.

Or bring your lawn chair and watch the parade which begins at 11 a.m. at the Guler County Park. Leading the parade will be Bugs & Rainy Hill, honored guests. Call Dale and Randi Fitch if you have any questions. Registration starts at 10 at the north end of the park. You need to register to get your number and line-up position. After the parade, there will be children's games planned by Wendy Baker. And while the games are on and in-between the games, there will be face painting by Nancy, Sandi and friends. So how could anyone want to miss all of this and much, much more! You who are new, come and enjoy meeting your friendly community. And all of you who have come in the years past, you know how much pleasure the Trout Lake Fair is. Many volunteers work hard to make this a special event.

Haven't we had the nicest weather? This is a perfect time for bike riding, white water rafting, kayaking, fishing, gardening, and hiking and climbing. We see Mt. Adams regularly from our yards or out our windows. But have you taken a hike up into that scenic territory? Ray and I did a loop hike recently which followed Crooked Creek on trails 100, 105, and 9. We viewed gorgeous waterfalls and vibrant wildflowers. And of course for those who like to camp, there are so many special places to enjoy. Pack your camera and take a drive. Another good place to take a picture is the parking lot at Trout Lake School. Enjoy, Sandi.
