Those present were Loveta Boyce, secretary, Moses Lake; Carol Martinez, treasurer, Moxee; Tari Blankinship, vice-president, Winlock; Ann Roggenkamp, second vice-president, Onalaska, and Helen Appel, president, Dusty.

Brian and Angela Broeckel were hosts to a number of visitors at various times over the weekend. Angela’s parents, Guenter and Brigitte Scherwinski of Mountain Home, Idaho, and Alex BeDell and Brody Yamamoto, Portland, came to participate in harvest. Sami BeDell arrived Sunday. Alex, Brody, Sami, Graham BeDell and Adam Niemet of Spokane joined Danny Rathbun, LaCrosse, in water skiing, knee boarding and jet skiing on the Snake River Sunday. The entire group, plus Karen Broeckel, Dusty, were dinner guests and had an early celebration of Graham’s birthday which is later in the week.
