Castle Rock News 03.19.14

 

It's time to get out and either enjoy the gorgeous bike/walking path along the river, while watching the boats pass by, or just stroll, bike, or drive around the area, and soak in the beauty that many locals have provided for you - in our all of our Parks and the Sports Complex, as well as that fantastic people watching spot, the Boat Launch. You may even "hitch" a ride, like I did, with one of our avid fisherman and see our city from the water...or let's get out our water toys and enjoy the fun...still just $5.00 to launch a boat.

The locals that give their time and expertise have joined together through many organizations that interface with our City Teams to implement a GROUP VISION that gives all of us a - ONE OF A KIND - experience to enjoy, and I hope that you thank them for making CR a destination that Visitors don't take for granted, as they visit, and we shouldn't either.

Ryderwood News 03.19.14

It’s official! Ryderwood’s Spring Craft Fair will take place during Mother’s Day weekend, May 9 & 10. While Ryderwood has held Craft Fairs for nearly 10 years, the Spring Fair skipped a year so we don’t call it "Annual". Let’s just say, it’s time to "Spring into Summer" and there will be a wide variety of Mother’s Day gifts to choose from. Interested vendors should contact Marty at (360) 295-0096 for information and to get an application. The fair features only hand-crafted, hand-made or home-grown items.

Back by popular demand, will be Jan’s Brown-Sugar Meatloaf at Friday’s Café dinner. Make your reservations early, because it’s almost always a full house for this meal. The price is $8 each and includes everything from salad to dessert. Beverage, too! And no sales tax! Contact Linda @ (360) 295-0875 by Wednesday to make reservations. Tickets are also available before Tuesday’s Nutrition Lunch meal.

WSP warns of ‘A $10,000 Ride Home’

Don’t lose your pot of gold is the message that the Washington State Patrol (WSP) and other local law enforcement agencies around Southwest Washington are sending. St. Patrick’s Day may be a time to celebrate with family and friends, but your holiday plans should also include transportation to and from your destination if you plan to drink.

Getting a Driving-Under the Influence conviction is expensive. First time offenders can expect to pay an average cost of $10,000. By the time bail, fines, fees and insurance are paid; the costs could be more. Don’t forget about time lost at work and the toll it will take on those in your life.
