2016 Shorebird Festival arrives

Starting tomorrow in Hoquiam, the shorebirds you have been seeing swirling around our skies will have a festival all their own. Here’s a little recap of the schedule of events for visitors to the festival near and far.

Soup and jazz add funds to the SAVE KPLU movement in Raymond

South Bend attorneys Betsy and Joel Penoyar wait for their soup served by volunteer Barbara Bennett at the April 15 SAVE KPLU fundraiser in Raymond. Others in the background include customer Adelle Hougan and volunteers Jeff and Christine Ferguson, Jan Norman (back turned to camera) and Patricia Neve. The supper, held at Elks Lodge 1292, featured seven varieties of soup plus salad, bread and cupcakes. It was followed by a jazz concert across the street at the Raymond Theatre featuring an Aberdeen band, The Dukes of Swing, who donated their services for the event. More than $2,500 was raised through the two events.
