Folks, if you didn't see that great picture of our own Wendy Schmid accepting the Hay King award for irrigated alfalfa hay at the Klickitat County Fair, go get out your Enterprise and look it up. First woman to ever win the award. Way to go Wendy!
I've also heard rumors, but don't have facts, that Terry Schmid and some associates did well in a lawn-tractor pull competition a few weeks back. Terry? Want to send details?
Great news from the Northwest Service Academy. I don't usually do this, but here's an excerpt from their press release, which says it better than I can.
"Northwest Service Academy (NWSA), a program of Educational Service District 112, received a $624,000 one-year AmeriCorps grant that will allow it to continue addressing local priority environmental service and education needs in Southwest Washington. The grant comes from the Washington State Commission for National and Community Service (WCNCS) and will restore a portion of the funding lost when a nationally-funded AmeriCorps grant was not renewed earlier this year."
"The WCNCS grant will restore NWSA's Mt. Adams Center in Trout Lake and will also support two field teams in the Vancouver area. Previously, five teams operated in the Vancouver and Portland Metro area...Including contributions from NWSA partners, the new grant will generate a total of $1.2 million for schools and communities in Southwest Washington with the majority of these funds reinvested in the local economy."
Early notice: Community Club presents the second annual Little Girl Cupcake Tea Party on Saturday, Oct. 16, at 2 p.m. at the Trout Lake Grange. The cost is $5 per person. The club asks that you try to keep the ratio one young girl to one mother/grandmother. If you have more than one girl wanting to come or are an adult without a young girl to sit with, please call and ask and we will try to set that up for you. Please RSVP before Saturday, Oct. 9, to Meg Vollema, 395-2335.
