On Saturday the Boy Scouts held a pancake-and-sausage breakfast at the center, to help them raise money for the troop. They did a great job, and breakfast was very good. And they had a dessert auction afterward. In fact they did so well that we asked them to do our cowboy breakfast for us the day the Western Sale starts.

Speaking of the Western Sale — the set-up is coming along great. There will be two sidewalk sales on Saturday (April 30) and May 7.

Sue Sabin won the gift basket last Friday — congratulations.

Most of the snowbirds are back. A few are waiting for the pass to open, so wait no longer, Howard and Joann.

Our over-80 party will be on May 20.

The Thrift Store is open Monday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m., and Saturday during the Farmers Market.

The Senior Center is located next to the Methow Valley Community Center on Highway 20 in Twisp.
