Picnics pie- Fortunately, the rain held off h)ng man. picnics dominated Grape- view's weekend .social calendar from Friday thraugh Monday. Fri- day evening the ladies of the Sar- ah Eckert Orthopedic Guild held their annual picnic, this year on the lovely beach of Capt. and Mrs. Herbert Dowp-tl on Treasure Is- land. More than 50 members and guests feasted on delicious potluck picnic fare and steaming hot cof- fee. Special thanks for their warm hospitality is extended to Capt. and Mrs. Dowell while Mrs. Myron Polk made quite a "hit" by pro- viding all the ingredients for most generous servings of strawberry shortcake topped with whipped cream. Calories. be dm*ned! Les Rice's beach, once again provided a perfect spot for the annual Grapeview VFD picnic on Saturday afternoon and evening. Steaing pots of clams, sizzling grilled oysters, fragrant garlic bread and a variety of picnic foods worthy of a connoisseur tempted practically everyone to overextend gastronomically with scarcely a qualm of conscience. Ping-pong, boating, water skiing, swimming and visiting providedsupplemen- tary activity for the picnickers and the afternoon soon slipped away into evening with campfires and singing to round off the ev- ent. The spacious area cleared to the south of their newly-sided house was certainly worth the effort put forth by the Rices and set off the house to quite an advantage as well as extending the lawn and picnic area. Quite attractive! Ma- ny thanks to Les and Margaret for their hospitality. Those hardy souls who dug clams and gathered oysters, headed ly Chief Clam Dig- ger Les Rice, were Bob and Kay Ellison, Bucky Query, Orin Buck- ingham and Ruth and Ginny Free- man and the chairmanship of the food committee was most ably fil- led by Shirley Pogreba. WHILE THE firemen gathered on Rice's beach, the Nuel Curtis VFW gathered at Twanoh State Park. Attending this picnic from Grapeview were 3vCr. and Mrs. My- ron Polk and Jubie and Virginia Hicks with Clifford, Alice, Ka- thy and David.

Also present were the George Moa- kes of Litliwaup, the Avery Min- errs of Port Gamble. the Bill Bric- kerts of Shclton. the Clarence Gru- nerts of Agate and Mrs. Fred Ferris. Surprisingly enough, most absences were due to sickness ra- ther than inclement weather. Monday, about 20 Rainbow girls gathered at the Howard Somers' residence and picnicked, boated. water-skied, swam and ping- ponged to their hearts' content. Arriving about 11:30 a,m, by 4 p.m. the girls were happy to call it a day and were most grateful for the break in weather. Moth- ers coming along to chauffeur and lend a helping hand to Liz and her mother were Mrs. Connie Wravis and Mrs. Jeanne Nutt. Thursday, the Fred Lutzes and sons Larry and Laurie drove to Vancouver. where Fred was ad- mitted to the Veterans' Hospital for surgery. Phyllis and the boys made a slight detour over to Mos- sy Rock where they spent the night at the Earl Anderson ranch. Friday was spent visiting with these cousins, looking over the livestock being especially inter- esting to-young Laurie. and by Friday evening they had returned to Grapeview.

Fortun- ately, by Sunday, Clare was im- proved enough to be able to come home again. WE'RE ROOTING for Mrs. John Stevens too, hoping that by the time this reaches our readers she will have been discharged from the Clinic hospital in Shelton where she has been confined for over a week with a painfully sprained back. Baltimore, Md.. residents Ed- ward Mueller. sons Geoffrey and Conrad and daughter Jennifer are wisely setting but one work goal w-bile they spent the summer here at their Stretch Island cottage. Re-shingling their roof is the cho- sen endeavor and should leave them plenty of H.me to fully en- joy this beautiful area. When Mr. Mueller spent a week here in the latter part of June. much to the disappointment of all. the weath- erman offered his usual welcome, rain, rain, rain. r Conrad plans to transfer from the southern ,alifornia college which he has been attending to the University of Washington in order go take their highly recom- mended forestry course and will take advantage of the location of same by spending many weekends here at the cottage. "Weekends guests of the Orville Kagers were Mr. and Mrs. Frank Nowotny of Longview. The two couples became friends while Butte, Mont., residents; the Now- atnys moving to Longview in 1951 ---the Kagers comlng to this area iu 1952. Although the Nowotnys were able to join in the fun and make new friends at Saturday's VFD picnic they had to leave for home before the Eastern Star pic- nic at Kagers on Sunday.

Mr. and Mrs. Orin Soule bade farewell to them last Friday and welcomed granddaugh- ter Judy and her friend Colleen Maloney for a eimilar visit. At- tending the Orthopedic picnic at Dovells' beach offered them anex- cellent opportunity for getting ac- quainted. Visiting with Mrs. Daisy Bush is her daughter Mrs. John Purdum Fruitland, Ida. With Mrs. Purdum came her two sons Jerry and Ric-' ky and little friend Helen Mag- nuson. From Seattle, also visit- ing, is David Brown. Sounds like there will be lots of activity in this vicinity. Our friendly local grocer, 3ulie Stock, responded to the call of duty late last Thursday afternoon and navigated our fire truck to the southern end. of Pirate's Cove. Apparently a brush fire which had been smoldering on the beach since the previous weekend, broke into open flame, singeing nearby tree lifnbs and an alert observer immediately reported same. About 10 volunteers also responded to the call. It is particularly import- ant during the summer time to carefully tend such fires, complete- ly extinguishing them before leav- ing them to avoid their possibly endangering surrounding property. WEDNESDAY drop-in guests of the Walter Claytons, Sr., were Capt. and Mrs. Leonard Hansman with daughter J'erri Lee and son Bobby. Following dinner, the eve- ning was spent visiting and before their departure the following af- ternoon, the Hansmans had re- acquainted themselves on the hap- enings of the past few years. Capt, Hansman is between stations, hav- ing recently left Fort Benning, Ga., and is expecting to be assign ed to a post near Frankfurt, Ger- many.
