By LOUISE EWART -- 426-4925 To enjoy that dream vacation, sell those don't needs now. The fun begins when you see how fast money grows by selling through the want ads. like having money in the bank. For Fast, Fast Service Just Phone your It's Just We'll be glad to help! Because of super pressure this will be the first column of my new series of the Grapeview Gadabout... I knew Lou majored in journalism but I suspect she has a minor in psychology. The big news of the week is the return of our 4-Her's from a week's stay at Camp Panhandle. I think I was getting lonesome for my children for the pick-up time was 2"00 O'clock and I was there at ten in the morning and kidnapped Roger but Peggy wanted to stay until the end. When I drove into camp I could easily tell that tie-dyeing must have been a very popular class for everyone was resplendent (I looked the spelling up) in multicolor tie dye shirts, pants, and anything available, and a class was busy stirring huge pots of dye to make ready for the next batch. Our worthy leaders were almost eliminated entirely from the Camp activities for the week. Grace Van Horn had planned for months to help Pattie at camp and was unable to attend at the last minute because of the illness of her daughter, Valerie. It was necessary for Pattie to make a quick trip to the hospital the day before she was to leave, she even had to be helped out of the camper when she arrived at camp. Her distress was due to a slipped disk, but she did what the doctor ordered - slept on a board for a week and was in great shape to come home. The girls who went to camp were Carol Jannings, Debbie Hardie, Peggy Ewart, Sandra Denny, Nita Pettitt, Kelly Harris and PeN Pettitt. The boys .who attended were Jimmy Cochran, Roger Ewart, Kris Nicklaus and Vincent Pettitt. Pattie told me of a funny incident that happened the last night. She woke up with a start when she heard two thuds and investigated with a flash light and found Roger had fallen off the top bunk bed and was all tangled up in his sleeping bag. She got him settled down and just before she went back to sleep she thought to herself he sure must have bounced hard for she had heard two thumps. When morning arrived she was embarrassed to find another sleeping bag on the floor with a youngster in it. They had both fallen off at the same time. The Park and Recreation Board will not have a meeting in August. The next meeting will be held in September. Cards will be sent to all members to notify them when to come. Grapeview is losing one of its very nicest families for the Nicklaus's home on Thomas road was sold last month and the new owners will move in before school starts. Art and Ernie have drawn plans for a new home to be built around their cabin at Spencer Lake. Bret and Sheri Person will be home Sunday after a month's stay in California. Morn and Dad will be so glad to have them back but Sam, Bret's dog, will be the Service happiest of all for he sured missed his boy. When I drove into Shelton the other day as usual, I glanced in the Dog Pound (if I see dogs I feel bad and if I don't see any at all | feel worse), and thought I saw a St. Bernard. I turned in and, sure enough, there was a beautiful one sitting there with such a mournful look. I drove on to the police station and told them if the owner did not pick it up to call me and I would take it and find a home for it. They were very nice and told me I was about sixth on the list. Later in the day they called and said the owner had picked the dog up and taken him home. John and Carol Ewart are taking a few days off from the Monarch Clam business to go to Idaho to see Carol's parents and attend the l 0th anniversary of her high school graduation class. Mr. and Mrs. Jim McGuire had guests last weekend when the McDonald family from Portland came to visit. Dana, the youngest daughter, wanted to try to water ski and really did a great job, up on one ski first try. What makes this a news item is that Dana had her leg amputated last year because of illness. Her mother and father are so proud of her for she rides her bike to school when the weather is good and when they get a little down she cheers them up. Dana is eleven years old. Remember, smash your cans and help the re-cycling effort. The Family Market in Shelton has several huge containers for your clean smashed cans. Bury your peelings, coffee grounds and egg shells to make better soil, don't use poisons for sprays. If everyone of us tries to help the ecology of our own small space, and the space is multiplied by thousands and millions we have a chance to save our land and waters. Looks like 1 am back in business at the same old stand so if you have any news please call 426-4925 in the evenings. man on AF Base U. S. Air Force Staff Sergeant Robert J.

Finder is asked to contact the local Sheriff's office. DINGHY LOST An eight foot white dinghy, with red trim and a pointed bow, was lost from the Allyn area last week according to a deputy of the Sheriff's substation in Belfair. FOR TWO NIGHTS last week Mr. and Mrs. Clem Holl of Altyn were able to admire the fruits of their labor in caring for a night blooming ceres plant in their small greenhouse. Blossoms on the plant open to display their fragile beauty after dark and remain open only one night each year. Nine blossoms opened on Tuesday night last week, and the others on Wednesday night. Mrs. Holl is seen displaying two of the "second nighters" which were still not completely open when this picture was taken. Rare tropical plant seen in A rare treat for members of Beachcomber Garden Club was experienced one night last week when they gathered at the Clem Holl home on the Allyn-Grapeview Road to view the one-night-a-year blossoming of a night blooming ceres plant in the Holl greenhouse. A tropical plant, the large, fragile white blossoms have the unusual feature of opening up after dark only one night a year. On the night the garden club members, of which Mrs. Holl is one, watched the buds slowly open into blossoms, nine of the 17 buds opened, giving off a sweet, heavy scent. By 7 a.m. the next morning they had closed again, to hide their beauty for ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~l~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ By JULI PRESTON --CR 5-6288 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~| Travelers through Belfair can notice that the old school chalet is completely gone.
