Large attendance at the 2nd Annual National Night Out

Local law enforcement and emergency response agencies assembled at South Fork Landing Park near downtown Raymond for the 2nd Annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 4. Several other local agencies and organizations also attended to raise awareness for many causes.

New organizer

Zoe Sowa, secretary at the South Bend Police Department, was tasked with setting up this year's National Night Out. Last year's event was organized by former Pacific County Sheriff's Office Chief Civil Deputy Denise Rowlette who departed the office at the start of the year.

"Chief Criminal Deputy Pat Matlock reached out to me to see if I would help this year," Sowa said. "I took part in it last year and helped. Since Denise is no longer there, I was asked to take over and spearheaded it this year."

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.
