It’s nice to know there are some folks who read the Lewiston Sluice Box – I heard from several that they missed my column last week … sorry about that. I just spaced out and lost track of time.
One thing I did want to mention last week were “Kudos” to some locals who stepped up when needed. Sean Elliott and Connor Nixon really helped make the Deer Meadow Disc Golf Course a happening place a few weeks back with the 10th annual Ice Bowl. True to its name, it snowed that day, but players came anyway. The funds and food donated help the Lewiston Fresh Start Food Pantry — so it all goes to a good cause. Good job guys. And, thanks go to the many sponsors who helped make it all happen.
Kudos also to Rob Jud, who picked up that big pile of trash that many of us drove by day after day on Trinity Dam Boulevard. He stopped and filled 14 bags full of someone else’s garbage. Thank you, Rob, for helping Lewiston stay clean. Shame on those who tossed it all out.
The crew at the Old Lewiston Schoolhouse Library is holding their end-of-the month art class from 1 to 3 p.m. this coming Sunday. This is a free art class, for all ages. The theme this month is “collage” – which means “a piece of art created by sticking various different materials such as photographs, paper or fabric on to a backing.” So, bring any of your photographs, magazine pictures, postcards, concert stubs, love letters — anything that can be glued on to paper.
If you are looking for a way to pitch in and help around Lewiston, how about adding your time and talents to the Old Lewiston Peddlers’ Faire? This event happens on Saturday, June 3. The Faire still needs volunteers to help early in the morning to check the vendors in and later to help with traffic control. The next meeting will be 6 p.m. Thursday, March 9, at the Lewiston Community Center. If you are a craft or a food vendor, you can download applications for a booth at www.lewistonsparkies.com. If you want to help, call or text Tania Gravley at 530-784-3992 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Lewiston Garden Club will hold its first meeting of the year at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 1, at the Lewiston Community Center. Everyone is invited to attend and to join. Dues are just $12 a year and will be due at this meeting. The Garden Club helps maintain the Lewiston Botanical Garden, the Lewiston Pioneer Cemetery and gives scholarships each year to high school kids who are majoring in some form of agriculture, horticulture or those professions associated with gardening. This is a potluck so bring something yummy.
If you are new to Lewiston and want to get up-to-date emails on what is happening around town, let me know! I send the “Lewiston Happenings” to about 350 e-mail addresses, when there is news about bake sales, blood drives, fire information, etc. I use the ‘blind carbon copy’ so no one sees your name or email address. Just e-mail me and I will add you to the list.
Katie, you are amazing. Thank you for all the effort you put into the community!
