1. SPIRITUAL MATTERS

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

Thank you to all the volunteers who help make this a successful celebration.  Special thanks to special guests Jane and Jerry Kirkpatrick, music by Wasco resident Tyson Huckins, Rod McGuire and Paradise Rose BBQ staff, Pastor Bob Reasoner for another wonderful tribute to the veterans, and the adults and young adults who pitched in and helped with many jobs that needed to be done. Parade announcer Joe Dabulskis and their family flag that led the parade, fun family nite, ABC Husky’s pancake breakfast and the new special activity coordinated by the Catholic Church, a fund raiser for the county food bank— bingo and ice cream sundaes. Of course, to special engineer Tom Lepinski for driving the children’s train, and wonderful car show entrants. Hope everyone had a chance to see the new Wasco city brochure designed by Jessica Wheeler and funded by a grant from the Sherman County Cultural Coalition, and several vendors. Hope to see you next year!! ~Carol MacKenzie, Mayor, City of Wasco, Oregon

THANK YOU to all the teachers and school groups that visited the Sherman County Historical Museum in the month of May. I am happy to have shared our Sherman County history with 145 students from 3 different counties in Oregon these past few weeks! The best part is we have a few more groups to still visit us! Also, special thank you to Joe Dabulskis for giving a special presentation for a group of students on outdoor skills while visiting Sherman County on their way to their outdoor school event. Thank you to everyone for taking a walk on the rural side here at the Sherman County Historical Museum! ~Patti Fields, Director

LOCAL HOST FAMILIES FOR HIGH SCHOOL EXCHANGE STUDENTS. Non-profit ASSE International Student Exchange Programs (ASSE), in cooperation with your community high school, is looking for local families to host boys and girls between the ages of 15 to 18 from a variety of countries: Norway, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Japan, to name a few. ASSE students are enthusiastic and excited to experience American culture while they practice their English. They also love to share their own culture and language with their host families. Host families welcome these students into their family, not as a guest, but as a family member, giving everyone involved a rich cultural experience. The exchange students have pocket money for personal expenses and full health, accident and liability insurance. ASSE students are selected based on academics and personality, and host families can choose their student from a wide variety of backgrounds, countries and personal interests. To become an ASSE Host Family or to find out how to become involved with ASSE in your community, please call the ASSE Western Regional Office at 1-800-733-2773 or go to www.host.asse.com to begin your host family application. Students are eager to learn about their American host family, so begin the process of welcoming your new son or daughter today! ASSE INTERNATIONAL (FORMERLY AMERICAN SCANDINAVIAN STUDENT EXCHANGE) IS A NON-PROFIT, PUBLIC BENEFIT ORGANIZATION.  ASSE IS OFFICIALLY DESIGNATED AS AN EXCHANGE VISITOR PROGRAM BY THE U. S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE, WAS FOUNDED BY THE SWEDISH MINISTRY OF EDUCATION, COOPERATES WITH THE CANADIAN PROVINCIAL MINISTRIES OF EDUCATION, and the NEW ZEALAND DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION.
