Don’t miss Yelm festival

from MY DESK By Michael Wagar

Prairie Days is upon us, and this year’s event is as big and bright as ever. The parade, with 97 entries, starts 7 p.m. and will last about two and a half hours. If you enjoy a parade, and want your kids to have a fighting chance to get some of the candy tossed out, get there early. Some start homesteading their spots along the parade route as early as 4 p.m. A new Beer and Brats Fest is taking place at the Yelm Food Co-op before, during and a bit after the parade. Stop by the Nisqually Valley Moose Lodge’s corn on the cob booth in Yelm City Park and just try to pry out the secret recipe that goes into the

boiling water. Instead of getting pulled over by Yelm Police Chief Todd Stancil, have him grill you up a burger at the Lions Club food booth (kudos to the city of Yelm for scrambling to put together a new kitchen building after a circus truck driver struck the former kitchen building and knocked it off its foundation). For kids, of course the carnival beckons. Give the young ones a treat by buying a wrist band that gives you all-day access to every carnival ride. Purchase at the carnival for $30, but if you are frugal, buy the wrist pass at Tim’s Pharmacy for the discount rate of $23. Note: you must purchase the cheaper wrist bands the day before the carnival comes to town, and Tim’s Pharmacy closes its doors by 7 p.m. Wednesday. This year’s Grand Marshals are Barrie and Susan Wilcox, of Wilcox Farms in Roy.

The choice is spot on. Barrie Wilcox has taken part in Prairie Days ever since he was a young lad, coming with his dad and grandfather. Wilcox remembers helping set up and break down the booths in the park as a kid. If you did back then, you got a free ice cream bar for your work. Congratulations to Susan and Barrie for their selection. May they enjoy every minute riding down the parade route in their 1928 Chevrolet touring car. Give them a loud ovation as they pass by. Thanks go out to the Yelm Chamber of Commerce and Executive Director Cecelia Jenkins for organizing the parade, and to the Yelm Lions Club for taking care of all the details for Prairie Days that go on in Yelm City Park. Yelm is putting on a community celebration, so reserve June 27-29 on your calendar. Yelm is about to go festive.

Parade kicks off weekend celebration People start lining East Yelm Avenue with their trucks backed up and their lawn chairs sprawled out as early as 4 p.m. Thursday, even though the parade doesn’t officially start until 7 p.m. If you are one of the early birds, stroll down to the parade entries staging area on 103rd Avenue at 6 p.m. to see the floats up close, but be sure to be back in your seats when the T90 Motorcycle Drill Team starts roaming up and down the parade route at 6:45 p.m. With this year’s theme, “Stars and Stripes Across the Prairie,” once again the parade promises to be the centerpiece of four days of community celebrations. Last year’s parade lasted two and a half hours, and this year if the number of entries — 97 — is an indication, will be just as long. The parade lineup includes eight horse units, including Tacos Gaby’s 12 prancing stallions complete with colorful Spanish costumes on dancers and riders. Founded by the Yelm Lions Club but now organized by the Yelm Chamber of Commerce, highlights include the Washington State American Legion marching band and a color guard by Joint Base Lewis-McChord’s 1st Special Forces Group. Overseeing the parade are the 2013 Grand Marshals Barrie and Susan Wilcox (see page six for a feature on the couple). Cecelia Jenkins, the Yelm Chamber of Commerce executive director, has been organizing the parade for the past 18 years, but her memories go back to her childhood. She remembers marching in the kid’s pet parade dressed as Huckleberry Finn, complete with a straw hat, suspenders and, of course, barefoot.

The T9O Motorcycle Drill Team kicks off the Prairie Days Parade Thursday night. The parade lasts about two and a half hours. This year 97 entries signed up. Highlights include prancing stallions, the Washington State American Legion marching band and a color guard by JBLM’s 1st Special Forces Group.

She still holds a grudge against her brother Rip for winning first place for “Rip’s Rocket,” which had the young boy riding down the parade route in his little white pedal car. Jenkins said it is the childhood memories that last

forever that are at the heart of the parade and Prairie Days, and encourages everyone to fully take part, starting with the parade, and then wrapping up with a myriad of events at Yelm City Park the rest of the weekend.

Wilcoxes serve as Grand Marshals The Grand Marshals for this year’s Prairie Days Parade will be longtime Yelm community members Barrie and Susan Wilcox, from Wilcox Farms in Roy. The Wilcoxes said they are excited and surprised they were selected to serve as Grand Marshals. “We feel really honored,” Susan said. “My husband was in the parade as a child and our children were in the parade, so the parade means a lot to us.” Cecelia Jenkins, Yelm Chamber of Commerce executive director, said the honor is “long overdue.” Barrie has fond memories of participating in the parade when he was a child with his siblings and cousins. “They would shut the whole Main Street down and play music and everyone would just dance,” he said. The couple met in college and have been married for 51 years. They built their home on Wilcox Farms, where he still works as an advisor, in 1966. In their free time, they enjoy skiing and going on bicycle tours around the world. “We ride on a tandem bicycle. It keeps us together and it’s fun because we can talk together the whole time,” Susan said. Barrie’s grandparents started Wilcox Farms after taking a train from Seattle to McKenna in 1909. His father, Truman Wilcox, was one of the original participants in the Prairie Days Parade. “Our family really does go back,” Susan said. Susan, who is originally from Ontario, Ore., will be participating in the parade for the first time. Each year she looks forward to attending the parade to catch up with old friends. “The whole community turns out. People you

haven’t seen in years you’ll see, and it’s really fun for the whole community to get back together,” she said. “You see the people your kids went to school with and their parents. That’s what really makes it really special.” The Wilcoxes will ride the parade in one of their antique vehicles – a 1928 Chevrolet Touring Car– as they wave to the crowd.

Active in their church, Yelm Lions Club and their alum group from University of Puget Sound, Barrie said they are proud to be part of the Yelm community. “They are dedicated Prairie Days and community supporters,” Jenkins said. “How fortunate our community is to have such amazing people among our volunteer team.”

Davis brings its midway to Yelm

Davis Amusement Cascadia brings back its great American midway to Prairie Days in Yelm City Park starting Thursday afternoon and ending at about 5 p.m. Sunday. A carnival spokesperson said its group “knows that the ultimate carnival should be clean and wholesome, fun for the entire family — with something wonderful for everyone, young and old, no matter what income level. We want to bring this very special experience to the people of your community — the highest quality carnival that has ever visited.” Rides are at the heart of the carnival. For kids, that includes Looney Airport Rides (fly your own airplane up and down), Mini Enterprise (pilot a UFO!), Raiders (a three-story treasure hunt), Sooper Jets and many more. Family rides include Dark Rides (very mysterious), Dizzy Dragon, Dragon Wagon, Jalopy Junction and Mardi Gras (a New Orleans-style fun house). Major rides are Bumper Cars, Down Surge Rides (fall from the sky), Gravitron, Gondola Ferris Wheel and the Zipper, among many to choose from. Cost for each ride varies. Ticket books can be purchased at the carnival

($1 per ticket, 24 tickets for $18, and 40 tickets for $30) as well as an all-day unlimited ride wrist band for $30. Each ride takes three to five coupons per person. Military discounts are also available. The best deal is to buy your kid (or for yourself) an all-day wrist pass at Tim’s Pharmacy just down the road from the carnival for $23. Those discounted ride passes can be purchased up to the day before the carnival (Tim’s Pharmacy closes at 7 p.m. Wednesday). With the kids now out of school, the best move is to get to the carnival early Friday or Saturday, and let the kiddos ride until they get a bit green at the gills.

Lions Club burgers are a must

The Yelm Lions Club was the original founder of Prairie Days and continues with organization of all activities in Yelm City Park, but might be best known for its amazing signature burgers, complete with caramelized onions. “The Yelm Lions are just known for a good burger,” said Angie Evans, the vice president of the Midday Lions. For $5 you get a burger. Add $1.50 and you get a whole meal. The Lions’ booth also sells pulled-pork with coleslaw, hot dogs, Polish dogs, tacos, a taco salad and more. All the proceeds go back into the community, from building wheelchair ramps for the disabled and elderly, providing scholarships for our youth, to glasses and vision therapy for the needy. “When you are visiting Prairie Days, know if you go to the Lions Club food booth your money is going back to the community,” Evans said. “You not only feed your family, you’re helping someone in need.” Beyond raising money, the event is a pleasure, Evans said. “It’s a blast,” she said. “You get to see everybody in town — we come together for a wholesome community event.” The Lions Club food booth was a bit in doubt

Dog-gone mutt show

Saturday’s highlight just might be the Magnificent Mutt Show from 1-3 p.m. at Yelm City Park. The free event is for kids 12 and under and their “mutts,” although purebreds will be welcomed as well. Kids and their dogs (sorry cat owners) just need to show up before 1 p.m. at the Main Stage to sign up for the event. Judging is by local dignitaries such as the mayor and state senator, who tread lightly by giving everyone an award. JW Foster, Yelm Lions Club member and one of the organizers of Prairie Days, said every kid who enters wins. Sometimes it takes a bit of creative judging. Categories can include longest tail, shortest legs — even best-worst teeth. Prairie Days has at least in part as its early roots the kid’s pet parade and the mutt show continues in this tradition. This Saturday event is one of the should-notmiss ones if you are looking for a down-home smile. What’s better than a kid and his dog?
