According to the “weather person”, October 2013 may qualify as the driest on record for our area. It has made for some incredibly nice weather of late. Here’s hoping it holds out for this weekends’ 9th Annual Arts & Crafts Fair.
Marty reports that a great group of vendors is expected at the Craft Fair: some returning, some new; some local, some from afar. The RWCS Bake Sale and Women’s Club Baked Potato Lunch will enhance the experience.
Meanwhile, “The Nest” (in the southwest corner of Community Hall) features a huge variety of “Made in Ryderwood” products year ‘round. Stop by while you’re in town.
Holiday Shoppers Note: There are only 3 weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year! You can stay “ahead of the curve” by shopping at local craft fairs and bazaars for special gifts for special people.
Friday’s Café meal (following the Craft Fair) will be homemade Soups (Clam Chowder or Creamy Broccoli) served in sourdough bread bowls. Call Linda at 295-0875 to make reservations. Call me at (360) 355-7315 to verify Saturday’s “Open Mic”.
Ryderwood’s VFW Post 7010 will meet on Monday, Oct. 28, at 11:30 a.m. in Community Hall. This group does all sorts of projects around town and always welcomes new members. Contact Mark at (360) 295-0598 for information.
Burgers (beef, chicken or veggie) & Soup (homemade or home-style) at the Café are always available on Mondays from 4 – 6 p.m. Plan to visit the next Karaoke evening on Nov. 4.
Check out the “humungous” monster pumpkin on the front porch of the Café! It was grown locally in a wee 4’ x 4’ bed – very impressive! Bring a permanent felt marker (or look for ones nearby) and leave a friendly greeting. Volunteers will be needed when it’s time for disposal…
