Trout Lake Newswriters
Maxine Bulick, 395-2101
Sarah Burr Arnold, 395-2669
Sean McGroarty, 395-9394
It is with regret that we note resignation of Pat Arnold from her newswriter's position. After many years (19 or so) of both writing for the column and organizing the writers, Pat has moved on to other activities. Her columns -- always well written and full of items of interest, history of the column, and history the town -- will be missed.
But we welcome, with enthusiasm, two new writers" Kira Fogerty and Sean McGroarty. Our e-mail addresses and telephone numbers will appear at the beginning of the column so please contact us if you have news to submit. Kira is the coordinator for the Farm to School program at Trout Lake School. I am sure that she will be able to keep us well informed about farming and school events as well as other subjects. Sean enjoys writing and is connected with the activities of folks younger than I am here in Trout Lake. I am sure that he will be able to keep us well informed about aspects of life in Trout Lake that did not previously get reported in the column. Looking forward with anticipation to the columns of the new writers with new styles and new subjects.
The Presbyterian Church is holding the first of its educational events on Oct. 18 in the church fellowship hall. The speaker will be Tom Reynolds. He will present the lecture the "View from the Bench" which touches on his time as a judge in Klickitat County. The lecture begins at 7 p.m. The lecture will be preceded by a potluck dinner which starts at 6. Please contact Cheryl who is organizing the dinner at 395-2207 to find out what type of a dish to bring.
To celebrate Food Day, the Healthy People Alliance of Klickitat County in partnership with the Gorge Grown Food Network will host a screening of "Nourish" and an exchange of home grown food at the Grange on Thursday, Oct. 20, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Ardis DeFreece, a local artist who creates paintings in oil and acrylic, will offer after school class for children at Destino, a new shop here in Trout Lake, beginning Nov. 7.

Destino, we hope more about this new venture later, is located on Hwy. 141 in the large rectangular red building just up the hill from the old water company building.
