Summer weather caused all of our beautiful red tulips in the downtown area to show their pretty colors this week, but the first red tulip opened in front of LACEY RHA'S CAFE. Joy Parker won $22.00 by choosing that location. In all, The Red Tulip Event raised $426.00 for 2,500 tulips to add to our beautiful displays all over the city.
Did you see our new business across from LACEY RHA'S CAFE? We have a really interesting new shop called, LUTTRELL'S FIVE AND DIME that has opened at 27 Cowlitz Street West. IT'S GOT A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING, so stop in and talk to Owners Todd and Pam Lutrell, and hear why they committed to our city.
Don't forget our Clean Up Day for the city is Saturday, May 3, and the Kelso Rotary will also be helping us. The Clean Up is from 8 a.m.–1 p.m., and all are invited to help make the city Summer-Ready and have some fun too. Sign up will be at the Senior Center.
One of our new businesses, THE SPOT, our new dog grooming shop, has really impressed me with the care they take with dogs of all shapes and sizes, and your dog gets a report card at the end of the visit, which is the cutest thing I've ever seen.
Don't forget the Membership Drive has begun for our Chamber of Commerce, so check it out online, and mark your calendar now, for the I TOPPED THE ROCK EVENT, with sign up at the Middle School.
Another important activity will be the City Wide Yard Sale on June 13–15, so mark your Calendars now.
I don't know if you've noticed, but we are getting some interesting visitors to our area, and I got to talk to some Longview visitors, who come regularly to our area - just for our CASTLE ROCK BAKERY and RUSTYS RESALE. We have unique shops that I also hope you are considering.
The QUILT NEST also brings a lot of visitors to our area with their unique assortment of very special fabric.
I hope you also marked your calendar for the Craft Bazaar at the Exhibit Hall on Friday, April 25, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and Saturday, April 26, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
Well, till next week I hope you enjoy our city, as much as I do & please call me or text you events to me at (360) 749-7144 or send your announcements to PO Box 630, 98611 or email at email@example.com.
