Ryderwood News 06,17.15

This will be my last opportunity to remind readers of Ryderwood's Second Annual Ryderwood Sock Hop coming up this Saturday, June 20. Local DJ Steve Smith will spin your Rock 'n' Roll favorites from 1 to 5 p.m. in the Community Hall Auditorium. Dig out your "dancing duds" (or not) and come out to the end of SR 506 for a fun-filled afternoon. Everyone is invited to stay for the Potluck dinner that follows at 5 p.m. The Tip Jar will be donated to the Café.

There was a full house at last Saturday's Open Mic. Some visitors and a newbie to town joined the regulars for some very fine music. Open Mic is the 2nd Saturday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Café. All are welcome.

Winlock News 06.17.15

It is here, Egg Day is finally here! Friday night starts the annual Egg Day weekend. As many of you know, this is the time of year I always look forward to. I thought I would go back about 35-40 years and reminisce about the old days. How many remember Danny Voie dressed as the Rainier Beer? I always thought it was one of the best parts of the parade. I will never forget the empty can's coming out of the bottom, like the beer just went to the bathroom. Maybe it was one of those where you had to be there, but every time I think of the Rainier Beer, I think of Danny Voie. Thank you Danny for entertaining us all those years!
