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.
Napavine had a busy first day back! There were many things to be done in order to prepare for this next school year. Among those tasks, students needed to acquaint themselves with their new schedules and possibly a teacher they've never had before.
Lewis County Commissioner Gary Stamper has lived in Lewis County his entire life. He doesn't just like Lewis County. You can tell he loves Lewis County.

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.
It's that time of year, it's back to school time for many students in our area. With back to school comes the expense of school supplies for many families, yet many families in our area cannot afford all the supplies needed. With this in mind, two businesses in Winlock have started "2019 Winlock Schools Supply Drive."
St. Mary's Mission in Toledo is viewed by many in the area as a place that has helped many. Now it is helping Cowlitz Tribal Elders, not just in housing, but in gardening and food as well.

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."
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.
