Hoodsport Hews " " lp " " " Bingo fundralse:l" he s provide gifts for children at a wonderful feeling it is give, to help people and put smile on their face. Lake Cushman Community Con- nections experienced just that when they adopted two fami- lies for Christmas. Members of the group provided gifts for the children and extra food to supplement the holiday meals purchased with group funds. One of the ways the group is able to do things like this is to have two bingo games each year. The next one is coming up on Feb. 22 at the Fire Dis- trict 18 hall, 240 N. Standstill Drive. Ten dollars for 10 games and the prizes will be cash. Conversation heart markers and popcorn will be provided. This time baked goods will be available for purchase. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Call 877-5862 for more information. Do you enjoy writing? Would you By LOIS JERDEN like to practice?

This closure is necessary to ensure public safety while timber harvest operations and campground upgrades are underway. Hood Canal District Ranger Dean Yoshina said "this closure creates a temporary inconvenience but the public can look forward to many new campground amenities, including new tent camping area, new group camp- ing sites with picnic shelters and fire rings, additional RV sites, a host site, new toilets, new picnic tables, new kiosks, a new acccessible trail, addi- tional parking and a water distribu- tion system." For more information on Olympic National Forest go to fs.usda.gov/ olympic or call the Hood Canal Ranger District at 765-2200. Are you looking for something spe- cial to do on Valentine's Day?
