Here in Trout Lake although the winter is (finally) fully upon us, life has not slowed down. That is certainly the case for students at the Trout Lake School! After months of hard work the first Destination ImagiNation (DI) competion will take place in Issaquah on March 3. Also, the Trout Lake School Robotics team is putting the finishing touches to its creation that has taken all year to complete under the leadership of Mrs. Wells. With any luck they will do well at the upcoming regional competition in Portland on March 8. Good Luck Mustangs!
Elsewhere in the community, thoughts are turning to the planning of summer activities. The Trout Lake Arts Council has announced its "Artist Call" for the 2012 Trout Lake Festival of the Arts. The council invites all artists of the Columbia Gorge and surrounding areas to apply to exhibit at the 17th Annual festival which will be held July 14 and 15. This is a juried exhibition where up to 55 artists will be selected in all mediums of two or three dimensional fine art and craft. The work will be judged on quality and creativity. The home of the festival is a century old farm with a rustic barn, shaded lawns, and flower garden below Mt. Adams. It is a wonderful venue for showcasing local art. Live music, hands-on children's art program and outstanding food and drink complete the festival. Four thousand visitors are expected! Interested artists can get more information and an application by visiting the website at www.troutlakefestivalofthearts.com/artist-information. Or you may contact Laurie Sherburne at 395- 2294 or email@example.com. Applications must be received by March 31.
Finally, mark your calendar for April 4. The Trout Lake Irrigators Work Group will be holding a public presentation of the draft of the Trout Lake Irrigation Improvement and Hydropower Reconnaissance Study at the Trout Lake School starting at 7 p.m. Trout Lake Newswriters - Sofie Brubaker
