The Trout Lake Saturday Market opened its doors on July 2 -- those who got there early had their choice of wonderful home grown greens and berries. There were plants enough to last through the day, a wonderful and extensive collection of quilts, soaps, jams and jewelry -- and the cinnamon rolls -- the aroma was free!
"A group of Trout Lake residents have been discussing the possibility of organic egg production, marketing through Organic Valley. Organic Valley is a cooperative, best known locally for marketing milk from our Trout Lake dairies, with a mission to keep family farms profitable while producing healthy food. They are interested in establishing egg production in the Northwest. A representative from Organic Valley will be visiting Trout Lake to meet with interested persons. There will be a presentation and discussion, open to anyone who might be interested, on July 15 at 1 p.m. at the school. This is an activity suitable for small farmers and not necessarily requiring prior experience with egg production. For more information, call Pat Arnold 395-2233.
People have been asking about the Focus on Trout Lake performers for this year's Festival of the Arts. Doug Anderson reports that "the hour will be split by Harmony Allaway and Roxanne Larkin. Harmony, a well trained popular soprano, will perform classical, pop, and contemporary Christian literature accompanied by Janet Anderson on keyboard and Matt Dearden's small rock group. Roxanne with her zither, will perform as a singer as she did in Nashville for over 20 years before moving to Trout Lake this spring."
Focus on Trout Lake takes place between 3:30 and 4:40 on July 17 on the back porch at the festival site.
Remember that there are two full days of music, 40 artists displaying their work and children's activities available free to the public all day Saturday and Sunday, July 16 and 17, at 490 Sunnyside Rd. - better known as Dean and Rosie's, The Farm, a B&B.
Speaking of children's activities, Saturday begins with Crazy for Classical with arts and crafts, moves through Crazy for Americana from 1 to 1:30, the Dunnington's White Salmon Youth Program from 1:30 to 3:00. Sunday begins with Arts and Crafts at 11:00, Claymania and Crazy for Classical from 12 to 3:00.

All the activities are designed to allow kids to participate in activities that will nurture their natural abilities in music and art. Who knows, this may be the way to world peace Check the Trout Lake web site for greater detail regarding the schedules and events for that weekend.
