The Toledo Thursday Market is moving back to the outdoors starting May 6. They will again be at the boat launch and this year they are going to offer many several opportunities and ways to buy their produce and foods.
Also new this year is their site manager, Meagan Kirby. The funds were donated by Timberland Bank to provide the funds for the site manager. Meagan has been living in Southern Oregon and recently moved up to the area.
There will be a variety of vendors at the outdoor market, they will have produce that includes: mushrooms, vegetables, eggs, plant starts along with flowers and different foods. We had the opportunity to talk to a few of the vendors and this is what they are offering to the Thursday Market.
Vader May Day was a big success this year with the parade, cakewalk, vendors and of course the food from the Little Crane.
Vader Mayor Joe Schey was in the parade with his troops, it is always good to see a mayor participate in their city's parade. This was the event that many local officials showed up for. Lewis County Sheriff Rob Snaza, Undersheriff Dusty Breen as well as other deputies. Lewis County Commissioner Dr. Lindsey Pollock was in the route and Mayor Brandon Svenson from Winlock drove the Egg Day Float.
On the last day of the month, Friday, April 30, there was another food give away, this time it was located in Bay Center in front of the Chinook Indian Nation Office. Altogether 480 USDA food boxes, 1,800 plus bottles of hand sanitizer, and 150 steelhead were distributed.
The boxes contained meat, cheese, vegetables, and dairy products ensuring each family would have a couple of meals from the boxes.
"Growing up in a tribal community, we are raised to take care of our community and give until it hurts," said tribal community member Bethany Barnard.
