Toledo shindig fundraiser event sure to be a hit

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.

Goodbye Town Crier; Hello Lewis County News

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.

Fresh outta Winlock: The Winlock Community Garden
Fresh outta Winlock: The Winlock Community Garden

The Winlock Community Garden was a group effort birthed by Ed Montgomery, a former teacher at Winlock High School. It has been a labor of love for teachers, students and community volunteers.

Montgomery started the program per Lisa Collins because he had a student who did not have any food available to him. Collins stated about Montgomery, "He is the one who took off with the program, he got grants, local businesses helped out, seeds were given, even chicken manure was donated by Mary with Draper Farms. It's been a great effort, Mr. Montgomery has really started something great."

Town Crier Yard of the Week: A determined yard

This week's yard of the week belongs to Glenna Stevens. Glenna is most likely not aware of her yard being in the Town Crier because she didn't make the submission to the paper. Her granddaughter Brandy Stevens made the suggestion. Brandy wrote to the Town Crier near the end of June and has patiently waited to see if her grandmother's yard would have an article written about it.
