The seventh and eight grade classes of Trout Lake Middle School are collecting hot weather clothing (shorts, T-shirts, any size, either sex), pencils, notebooks, art supplies, new toys, and new tennis shoes (small to large size), to send to a school in the home town in Honduras, where a foreign exchange student attending Trout Lake School this year is from. The organization that brought the student here, the Oregon-Western Washington chapter of Healing the Children, could use tylenol for children, ace bandages, chewable vitamins, and crutches. Money could also be donated. Please bring the items or money to Trout Lake School before Jan. 8. Indicate that the items or money are for the 7th-8th GRADE PROJECT FOR THE SCHOOL IN HONDURAS. For further information contact either Tina Nakae or Lisa English at the School at 395-2571.
The Trout Lake Saturday market had a successful 2011 season. The market was open for 11 Saturdays with 36 vendors registered. The vendor gross revenue was $33,000, an average of $3,000 per participant. It was the best year ever for the market.
On Jan. 9 at 4 p.m. an election of officers for the market will be held at the Trout Lake Grange Hall.
The 2012 market will operate from June 30 through Sept. 1. For more information contact Patty Gray, 493-8959.
We wish our readers a very healthy and pleasant New Year. A year free as much as possible of the twists and kinks, hills and valleys that life's road can develop.
