This week there will be a fundraiser event sponsored by the Windermere Foundation hosted by Paula Burrows of Windermere Centralia, Bonanza BBQ & Catering, and Farmers Insurance Toledo. All proceeds raised will benefit the Toledo School District children with basic needs. It's called the "Down Home, a Toledo WA Shindig" and everyone is invited to attend.
The event sounds like it will be a lively one with music performed by Tony Branco and Gubmint Cheese. There will also be a live, silent, and dessert auction, and of course a delicious "all you can eat" BBQ meal catered by the folks at Bonanza BBQ. Salads and fruit are by the Crowded Kitchen. As you can see, it is an event that the businesses in Toledo are supporting.

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources released an updated tsunami simulation model on Tuesday, August 27. The model shows the potential scenario if a Cascadia Subduction Zone quake were to erupt. The updated information has provided both state and local agencies along with residents on the coastline a glimpse of what to expect.
Minutes expected to matter
The new model shows that should a CSZ quake strike off the coastline the Long Beach Peninsula would have a 15-20 minute window before a large caliber tsunami would strike the area. Areas such as Tokeland would be in the same window of time but further into the valley, those near Bay Center may have up to 45 minutes. Raymond and South Bend both are anticipated to have approximately 60-90 minutes before being impacted.

The hot topic at the Raymond City Council meeting on Monday, August 19 turned out to be a proposed Thai restaurant that is looking to start-up business at the community center location. The spot previously held Liang's restaurant before it turned into a community center operated by Alliance for a Better Community.
Poised to make an investment
Within the proposal submitted to the city and council, hopeful business owners, the Keophommavong's, stated they have a $20,000 investment backing them. They asked the city to invest $5,600 in kitchen equipment and pay an additional cost for tables and chairs. Mayor Tony Nordin believed that the city may have had leftover grant money that could be used to cover the investment cost.
As many things are changing all around us, we at Flannery Publications decided it was time for a change for the Town Crier. For over a decade you have seen the Town Crier delivered in your mailboxes, but that's about to change. Starting next week, you will see the Lewis County News delivered weekly.
The Lewis County News is a name recognized by many. As the Editor of the Town Crier, I did not feel it represented the true meaning of what I wanted the newspaper to be. Yes, we are a community newspaper but community here means the entire county. I wanted something that would represent news in the county, thus the easiest thing to do was bring back The Lewis County News.
