Ryderwood News by CISSY SANDERS 360 295 3813

With July quickly becoming August our region has been very fortunate with this summer's weather. It hasn’t been extremely hot or dry, keeping our wildfire risk lower than last year. To the best of my knowledge, no problems are anticipated with Ryderwood’s water supply this year. As of this writing, menus for Friday night’s café dinner, and Tuesday's Senior Nutrition Lunch are not available. That is not an issue for those of us who appreciate any meal we don’t have to cook. My motto is: if someone is willing to do the cooking, I’m willing to do the eating. Saturday’s monthly Town Breakfast is a definite. Served in Community Hall from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m., the menu includes: pancakes, eggs (how you like them), sausage or ham, plus biscuits and gravy, OJ and bottomless coffee. All proceeds support veterans and town projects. Every Monday from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m., the café serves the best light fare: juicy burgers (beef, chicken or veggie), homemade soups and fresh salads are the standard. No reservations are needed. This week, the Ukulele Club meets at 7:00 p.m. to strum and sing-along. Folks are gearing up for the Town-Wide Garage Sale on August 23 and 24 (always the 4th full weekends of April and August). The Women’s Club is currently accepting donations at Pioneer Hall for their Super Sale. All of their fund-raising activities are ear-marked for the restoration and support of the historic Pioneer Hall. This year’s Long-Bell old-timers reunion promises to be a great one. Attendees from as far away as North Carolina are expected along with the grandson of the church’s architect. The event will showcase the church and offer town tours. All folks with an early Ryderwood connection are invited. come to a meeting. Vader let's get our voices heard. Are you interested in volunteering in town? Contact Mayor Lois Wilson for more info. There has been a few small children wandering Vader roads lately. Please drive with extra caution. Parents! Remind your children to watch for cars when out playing. Do you like my Article?

Princess Napawinah Charlotte on the Funtime Festival float.

Napavine Funtime Festival By Melanie Langley The City of Napavine just recently held their annual Funtime Festival. As always the festival opened with a parade. Appearances were made by the Napavine Police Department as well as the fire department. There were some fantastic floats with a couple of floats coming from surrounding communities. Like the Morton Loggers Jubilee Court float, where the princesses and queen of the court were seen. One of the princesses on the court is actually a Napavine

High School student, Alayna Brindle. She looked stunning in her dress and sash, as did the other girls. Another float was the Funtime Festival’s float with the newly crowned Princess Napawinah. There were quite a few vendors at the festival that ranged from food to jewelry. I, myself, enjoyed a cup of flavored Kona Ice. There was a stall selling Napavine High School merchandise, as well as more than a few fundraisers for various sports at the school district. The youth girls basketball team had a See funtime Page 6

Town Crier's Yard of the Week:

A yard of gardens

Sally Coady's yard provide dramatic color to the area.

By Paul Jungclaus This week’s yard belongs to Sally Coady. Sally’s yard came into view of the Town Crier when her friend, Lynn, suggested it. Sally and Lynn are both a part of the Winolequa Garden Club, and by the looks of Sally’s yard, the club knows what it is doing. Sally and her husband moved to Ketchikan Alaska

in the early ’80s from Winlock, and then they moved back to the area, Toledo, in 1998. It seems like Sally has been hard at work since then. From the moment someone pulls onto Sally’s driveway, it becomes apparent they are about to see a beautiful property. There are well spaced See Yard Page 8

dunk tank. If you hit the button by throwing a ball you sent one of the team players into cold water! NHS cheerleaders were selling drinks, rice crispy treats and cookies to raise money. It was nice to be able to have the opportunity to support the school’s programs in that way. Returning from last year was the giant blow up slide and bouncy house toys. Both toys were crawling with kids. I know that my own nephew certainly enjoyed them. It seems like they will be here to stay for future Funtime Festivals. Returning for its third year was the kids’ soap-

box derby. The kids of the Napavine area that participated raced each other in their homemade cars. Speaking of cars, there was a great turn out for the car show that was held in front of Annie’s Market. There were many impressive and good-looking cars. If you couldn’t make it this year, definitely keep your eyes and ears peeled for the next Funtime Festival when it gets to be around that time. If you have kids or are looking for something interesting to do on a summer day, keep the Napavine Funtime Festival in mind. It’s tons of fun!

Mickelsen Parkway. The funds had originally been granted to Winlock but now the county will be building and maintaining the road. This will include a turn lane off of Hwy 505 to the Parkway. Lisa Goodman with Benaroya Company stated, “We are pleased with Lewis County Commissioners approval of the 09 grant funding for Mickelsen Parkway. We are confident this will bring both near and long-term positive economic impact to Winlock and Lewis County.” The 09 funds will be in place along with $750,000 from the state legislature and $1.2 million from the Benaroya Company. This will all go towards the $3 million it will cost to build the parkway. Lewis County Commissioner Edna Fund stated, “I am pleased to be working with Lisa Goodman from Benaroya who took time out of her busy schedule to come to the county commissioners meeting. I appreciate her positive comments regarding the working relationship with the county and it’s wonderful to be on the same page as the Lewis County Economic Development Council.” Lewis County Public Works will be responsible for building the road, they do not have a date as to when the project will begin as they have to finalize permits and designs. Lisa Goodman was also there to show the county their plans for their entire development. Since this is now a county project, the county will be taking the lead. The current tax split between Winlock and the County is a 40/60 split, with the county receiving the majority. The industrial park is set to bring approximately three to four jobs per acre in their 320 acre development.

trees with well manicured grass as you first start up her driveway. When you get to her house, there is a circular rose garden in the center of the driveway. Off to the east side of her house, there is a flower bed on a small hill. That flower bed is beautifying a septic mound. The west side of her house is gardens. Multiple gardens that is. Running all the way around the house are flower beds. Besides a few flower beds, there isn’t that much on the north

side of Sally’s house. Well, except about thirty acres of field and an amazingly clear view of Mount St. Helens and Mount Rainier. In Lynn’s email to the Town Crier she said she and Sally joked about what part of the yard would go in the paper. They were definitely right about the hard task in deciding what should be

written about Sally’s yard. Sally puts so much effort and time into her yard. It is hard not being able to do her justice. On some days she is outside gardening at 6:00 a.m. to avoid the afternoon heat. Gardening isn’t just a spring and summertime hobby for her. She is at it year round. Thank you for adding to the peaceful

nature of where we live, Sally! If you live in Napavine, Vader, Toledo, Winlock, Ryderwood, Onalaska or anywhere else that receives the Town Crier feel free to send an email to yardoftheweektown@gmail.com so your yard can be featured in the paper.
