The most notable news this last week was the loss of George Woodruff. George made many contributions to the community and he will be missed. Slowly the town is losing the people who were the bridge between the pioneer days and the present. It is sad to see them go. As the sign at the Hardware store says "We love airplane noise. Good bye George."

Otherwise it is a slow news week in Trout Lake. The Festival of the Arts just ended. It was as much fun as always and very well attended. At one point there were no parking spaces left: how much more popular can an event get?

Put on your calendar to attend the next big Trout Lake event, the annual Trout Lake Fair which happens on Aug. 1 on the ground of Jonah Ministries. Enter your veggies and blooms in the Vegetable and Flower contests, be part of the Thread and Yarn crafts contest, participate in the Timber carnival, bring the kids to enjoy the kids' games, be part of "Trout Lake's World Famous Baking Contest," and watch the locally famous auctioneer auction off the winning baked goods after the contest ends. More than can be listed to do and enjoy at the fair so hope to see you there.

Also, come and enjoy good food and company at the potluck community dinner the night before the fair on July 31 at Elk Meadows. Lots of good cooks live in Trout Lake.

The Fair could use a few more volunteers. If you have a few hours to give to helping the fair be a success please contact Ray at 395-2318, and thank you in advance for your help.

Bought a grange cookbook last week. What an interesting blend of recipes and town history. And I have been informed that the food made from the recipes is very tasty. Maybe Jitney Potlucks could be resurrected.
