1. SPIRITUAL MATTERS
“Can you see the holiness in those things you take for granted–a paved road or a washing machine? If you concentrate on finding what is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.” — Rabbi Harold Kushner

THANK YOU & CONGRATULATORY NOTES:

THANK YOU! On behalf of ABC Huskies Child Care, a Huge Thank You to the volunteers and Sherman County Community for their support in helping make the 2019 Wasco Memorial Weekend County Breakfast a great success. Special recognition goes to North Sherman Rural Fire Protection District for use of their facility, Morrow County Grain Growers for securing and transporting the grills, Wasco Market for their generous donation of ham, Sherman County for making available the tables and chairs, to staff and board members whose teamwork kept everything running smoothly and most importantly to our volunteer cooks who prepared a fantastic meal: Norman Fridley, Kent Thomas, Chris Kaseberg and Commissioner Tom McCoy. This fundraiser is important to the operation of our child care program and we greatly appreciate the local support. Thank You!! ~Carrie Kaseberg, Gail Macnab & Melva Thomas – Board of Directors
THANK YOU! Thank you everyone who made Wasco’s memorial celebration such a success. Spectators, vendors, especially the Air Force ((Col Sean Sullivan and other pilot)) for the fly over. Pastor Joe Burgess gave a wonderful tribute to our veterans! ~Carol MacKenzie
I can live for two months on a good compliment. ~Mark Twain
COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION FUND-RAISERS:
All good fund raising plans have one thing in common: they show a diverse number of sources for their income. The board of directors plays a crucial role in the selection, implementation and evaluation of fundraising strategies. Board members may individually commit to raising and giving a certain amount of money. The basic premise of fundraising – You must ask; you must give. Everything after that involves creativity, imagination and a sense of fun.
Participate in the process of your community and country. One person can make a difference. Take a stand. Do something about it. Look hard at your larger community–it may need your specific participation. –Mary Anne Radmacher-Hershey
JUST ASK! How can I help? Sherman County’s current activities require the equivalent of 290 volunteers – part-time, one-time, once-yearly, once-monthly, as needed. Just ask! How can I help? The need is great. These come to mind… Your child’s activities. Your church. Sherman County Fair. Wasco Memorial Day Celebration. Sherman County Senior & Community Center. Sherman County Historical Museum. Sherman High School Booster Club. Wasco School Events Center. Grass Valley Pavilion. Cemetery clean-up days. Maryhill Museum. Food Banks. Respond to public notices of vacant local government positions, including EMT training. Lion’s Club. Or… if you can’t give of your time, give your support with your tax deductible dollars. ~The Editor.
