My gosh, can you believe it's almost Fair time already -- the excitement of the parade, the games, the wonderful food, chatting with friends and listening to the music while you watch the riders on the zip line and eat a burger. Yup, there's nothing like the fabulous Trout Lake Fair for summer fun. It all starts with the Community Potluck Social on Friday, July 31, at 5:30 p.m. at the Elk Meadows RV Park. As always, if your family name begins with A thru K, bring an abundance of your favorite side dish, salad, veggie or some hors d'oeuvres. If your family name begins with L thru Z, bring your favorite dessert or sweet stuff like brownies, etc. When you plan your part of the potluck, please remember to bring more than enough food for your family, as the extra will be shared with other families who will be doing the same for you.

Bright and early on Saturday, Aug. 1, from 6:30 to 10 a.m., the Trout Lake Volunteer Fire Dept. will be serving the "World's Best Huckleberry Pancakes" plus scrambled eggs, ham, juice and coffee. All this for just $7 per person, 12 and under, $5, plus you get to watch those guys cook!!

The 5K and 10K runs start at 8 a.m. in front of Jonah Ministries, as does the one mile Fun Run. Register at 7 a.m. for $13 with the T-shirt, or $3 without.

Once again the parade will start at 11 a.m. and proceed through beautiful down town Trout Lake to the Jonah Ministries Fair Grounds. Register at 10 a.m. at the west end of Guler Park; judging is at 10:30.

Visit the Grange Saturday Market while you're waiting for the parade to start. Nibble on some delicious cinnamon rolls or even a scrumptious and sweet breakfast tamale and browse through the fantastic quilts, antiques, hand made pottery and crocheted items. Plus get your raffle tickets for the 10 yards of gravel, or the truck load of firewood or the king size quilt. Tickets are $2 or three for $5.

Join the community for a dance at the Grange on Saturday evening at 7 p.m., with music supplied by Dan Richardson's Country Rock.

Are you looking for some culinary adventure? Itching to share your favorite brunch or lunch recipe? Wanting to make a little extra money? If so, the Grange Cafe is the place for you. The Saturday Market Cafe is seeking chefs to take over the kitchen for one or two Saturdays in August, September and October. You will have the use of the kitchen to prepare your recipes and then serve them to the market patrons on Saturday. Call Jeanie at 395-2737 or Maxine at 395-2101 if you are interested.

Vendors are always welcome to join the Market, or set up items in our Consignment Booth. Contact Dave Wampler at 395-2323 for more information. Soon the harvest from the Community Garden will be for sale at the Market also.

Look forward to Children's Art Classes to be held at the Grange on Aug. 10 to 14. These are provided through a grant from the Trout Lake Arts Council for ages 5-7 from 10 a.m. to noon daily. Ages 8-12 from 1 to 3 p.m. daily. Classes are limited to 12 children for each session with a $10, fee to cover materials. Call or e-mail Jan Muir at 493-2059, janmuir@pobox.com to register and get more information.

Well, it's too hot to think so that's it for this time around. See you all at the fair!! Maxine Bulick, news writer
