The World's Greatest Rummage Sale starts tomorrow, Aug. 29, in Trout Lake. Once again the Community Foundation members have sorted and priced thousands of donated items that will go on sale over the Labor Day weekend. This is a great opportunity to find that special item that you've been looking for; there is literally one of everything at this sale. Friday and Saturday are full price; Sunday, half price; Monday, $5 per bag; Tuesday and Wednesday free. Afterwards the rest is donated to local charities.

Money earned from this event is returned to the community in the form of scholarships that are awarded to graduates of Trout Lake School. Last year, the sale raised more than $12,000 for this fund. This is the last year that the sale will be held at its current venue, across from the General Store. Foundation members are in search of a new location for the sale; if you have any ideas contact Coralee Warner at 395-2218 or Page Logan at 395-3686.

School starts on Sept. 3 and I've noticed a few stray fallen leaves in my yard, plus some tell tale red leaves scattered among the roadside greenery. Can it be that summer is truly fading and fall is just around the corner??? Not yet please, Mother Nature, I'm not ready yet and my tomatoes are just turning red...give us a few more weeks at least.

Repairs to the Grange Hall will be made during the month of September and we may be unable to use the building for part of the month. Please call Jeanie Wellman 395-2737 or Maxine Bulick 395-2101 to check reservations for your group or activity.

There will be an old-timey contra dance at Jonah Ministries' gymnasium, Sunday, Sept.7, at 6:30 p.m. The first half-hour is geared for youngsters. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Everyone is welcome.

The dance is free. Wear cool comfortable clothes and shoes. Our special guest for this hoedown is Sue Baker! There will be live music from our local musicians. Feel free to bring ice cream or root beer .

Call Linda Robertson for additional information 395-2053.
