The Spring Musical, "One Day at Court," will be performed on Friday, April 27, 7 p.m. in the Trout Lake School gymnasium. Harmony Allaway is again directing, and of special note is that the musical was written by Lindsey Schmid for her senior project. There are many student helpers in addition to the performers. Children in the audience are encouraged to wear their own fairy tale (or good-natured) costumes. There will be a cast party following the performance in the multi-purpose room and everyone is welcome to attend.

The Trout Lake Community Foundation's annual penny drive is going on through May 31. All money collected from this event becomes the Pennies for Scholars scholarship. Our penny jars are located at merchants throughout the community. Private donations are most welcome, and a new feature of the penny drive is a family category.

The Community Foundation is also proud to announce that its website has been updated with lots of new information. www.troutlake.org/communityfoundation. The foundation is always looking for new members and new ideas. If you would like receive our annual newsletter please contact us at 395-2218 or email: troutlakefoundation@gorge.net.

Planning is starting for the Trout Lake Fair. Donna Tiffan wants to remind the Hi "yarn and thread artistry" entrants that the Trout Lake Fair is only a short four months from now. All entries will be most welcome. Pat Arnold wants to remind you gardeners that it's time to prune those blueberries and plant those tomatoes, and clean up that flower bed so your roses won't have mildew or whatever when you bring them to the veggie and flower show. The baking people probably want to remind you to start perfecting those recipes, and hopefully Dennis Anderson wants to remind you to get your cameras working for the photo contest.

The 11th Annual Mt. Adams Endurance Ride is coming up on May 19. There will be a separate story in the Enterprise, but the organizers want you to know that they need help with trail clearing. There is a lot of work, due to heavy blow down this winter. We will be organizing trail crews to head out for about three hours on Saturday and Sunday starting April 21 (and probably Sundays) through May 13. We particularly need people with chainsaw experience; however, anyone who likes to walk in the woods is welcome (BYO work gloves, or loppers or handsaws). Contact either Stephanie Irving or Stephen King at 395-2065 or Dave Welch at (509) 637-2614.

If you'd like to find out how you can participate in the ride, check out our website www.troutlake.org/endurance or contact the ride manager at 395-2065 or sirving@gorge.net. Of course, everyone's welcome to come by on Saturday and see for yourself what's up with the one of the fastest growing equine sports. As with all endurance sports, all you really need is a good heart.

Many many thanks to Bonnie Reynolds, Barbara Schram, and all the people who helped with the Immigration Forum sponsored by the Presbyterian Church last Saturday. The program was truly wide-ranging, from a presentation by a person who worked as a heavy equipment operator building the wall at the Mexican border to an agricultural employer, a doctor familiar with health care funding and staffing issues, an immigration lawyer, and an orchard manager who emigrated from Mexico. There were many interesting perspectives and much information on a complex and important subject.

Pat Arnold, newswriter.
