Welcome to Lind, WA!
The deadline for the Community calendar was August. If you didn't get your information
sent in by the cut-off date and still want the calendar,
please call Jacque Laird, calendar chairman.

In 1988, Karla Fowles & I spent weeks and weeks in the local museum reading old newspapers. We made the following calendar with information we thought was interesting and pertinent to Lind's history. The actual event happened on the day, month, and the year designated. Enjoy July!
Strange things happened to us in that museum, (located in the basement of the Phillips Building). It was spooky down there, and we never would do our research alone. Won't explain some of the instances that we incurred because it just gives Jim and Thayne more ammunition to have us committed. The last sentence at the bottom of each calendar is a comment one of us made.
Most of the 2016 derby photos and pages are posted!

One of the great things about being retired is doing what ya want and when ya want. Jim and I spent a few days in harvest fields with some of our favorite farmers. First stop was at Miller Farms where Matt let me hang out with him in the combine...Then a few days later, it was harvest at Coyote Flat Farms, (thanks, Tim Smith & Traven), then yesterday a great afternoon with Knodel & son Farms. Had a great time. Saw some beautiful wheat and even saw deer along the way. Thanks! To see all the pictures, check out the Agriculture pages.
