High Prairie News: Thanks for collecting

High Prairians are presently “busier than bees!” Many guys are starting to set up the tents for the annual Firehouse Sale, which takes place May 18 and 19 at the Aleckson farm on Centerville Highway. Tons of resale items are being delivered, the bratwurst will soon be prepared, stuffed and smoked, many are buying raffle tickets for the beautiful quilt made by High Prairie women, and hundreds of tomato, pepper plants, etc., to be for sale, are looking good with this great weather. All will be available to the community to raise funds for our #14 fire department on High Prairie and our community center.

This past Saturday, a memorial service was held for Margaret Johnson who spent over 40 years here on High Prairie. About 150 people attended to celebrate the long and meaningful life lived by Margaret, who was known by so many for her famous pickles, her crocheted table cloths, her many awards at county fairs, and participation in the historical society. Over 100 of those attending enjoyed a generous lunch as many memories were shared by all. Memorial donations can be made to the High Prairie Community Center in her honor, by contacting Barbara or Ben Parrish.

On Saturday evening, another 50 people attended the Morning Song Acres Bed and Breakfast event where Syncline and Domaine Pouillon hosted a wine tasting while KPTV’s meteorologist discussed weather patterns in the Gorge, and White Salmon Enterprise’s Jim White hosted an amazing telescopic view of Saturn, Jupiter, for everyone.
