More than 60 volunteers from various churches spent Saturday morning painting, power washing, weed whacking and sprucing up the city of Vader in recognition of National Day of Service.
Part of projects going on around the country, as well as elsewhere in Lewis County, the National Day of Service was first established in 2002 by the Bush Administration as a way to commemorate those who fell in the line of duty while responding to the World Trade Center Attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Participation in the event had been a first for Vader and Mayor Ken Smith, who was among those growing calluses that day, said he was "startled" to see so many individuals participating (65 in all).
Hitchcock classic Lifeboat will be shown at the Historic Fox Theater in Centralia Saturday at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $7 for Members, $8 for individuals or $20 for a family of 3-4 persons. For info, call (360) 807-8053.

They joined acts both local and regional, including the Wrinkles Of Washington, a 55-and-older performance troupe. (Those who missed the show can see WoW perform thie December if Lacy and Olympia.)

Students from the three local schools have a rare opportunity to see, hear and interact with professional musicians from the Canadian group Everything Fitz Sept. 23.
The Wrinkles of Washington performance on Sunday afternoon was a wonderful treat for sure! I’ve never seen so many full chairs in our large Auditorium and all were pleased with what they saw and heard. This group has some really talented folks! The only slight (very slight) disappointment was the tap dancers couldn’t be heard on the stage’s carpeting. It would be great to have them come back. Even better, would be an opportunity to see their full show in December, either in Lacey or Olympia.
The humidity has been frightful lately. It reminds me of anywhere I’ve lived, where you have to keep rice in the salt shaker so that it will shake. Rice is also recommended when you get an electronic device (like a cell phone) wet. Turn it off, remove battery and "card" if possible and place in a closed container covered with rice. It’s worth a try.
