BE A READING BUDDY: Public schools across the country have faced system-wide budget cuts. Increased classroom sizes and reductions in aide staff challenge our teachers. The Grays Harbor Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) wants to help! We are recruiting citizens age 55 plus to be Reading Buddies. Many studies show that if a child is not reading at grade level by 3rd grade, it greatly impacts their ability to graduate high school on time. By helping students learn to read you will promote reading appreciation and success. For about one hour per week, YOU can make a difference. Call Jenny today to learn more about the program.

Looking Back — Log roller

Hoquiamite Alfred “Tar” Henderson practicing log rolling tricks in August 1926. Henderson later performed these tricks at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. Not only is he balancing on a rolling log in the water but is doing it in roller skates — while jumping rope. Henderson was joined by another Hoquiam log roller, Matt Dillon, for tandem tricks like birling (trying to knock each other off the rolling log.
