Busy Week Along the Klamath!
by Judy Bushy
The Happy Camp Elementary School students are on Summer Vacation!! I missed the Eighth Grade Graduation Wednesday when my brand new ’87 Blazer had to be towed home over a little problem. The Happy Camp High School Students still need to take their Final Exams and finish the work for the year. But this is the last week!! Most of the week will be minimum days so the students study up for the finals, and Friday night at 7 is graduation night for the Senior Class of 2014!!
That should be enough excitement for one week, but there is more going on. The Happy Camp Chamber has had fliers up and down the River to announce the Art & Treasure Klamath River Highway 96 Yard Sale Weekend (June 14th.) Some Yard Sates will begin the day before and some will continue on Sunday, but all will have “treasures” out for sale on Saturday. What a wonderful time for a drive down the beautiful State of Jefferson Scenic Byway and stop at Yard Sales on the way. At the Klamath River Community Hall there will be a Flea Market and Craft Sale. They will also have a Brunch and a BBQ on Sunday and even some Horseshoe Games.
Saturday, Seiad Valley Volunteer Fire Department will be having a big sale and already four or five other sales are happening in the Seiad Valley. Then on to Happy Camp for more sales at various places.
The Scott Valley Bank Chili Cook-Off will take place in the River Park on Saturday as well. Contestants have already signed up to show off their best recipes for chili or salsa. This is a fun time at the Pavilion and the Chili will be made at the park and judged at one o’clock.
There will also be the Lawnmower Races next Saturday and Sunday, in fact, it is the first Race of the season and the first round of the Western Mower World Series Races. Saturday you can sign up at 1 pm for a $20 entry fee and $5 pit pass and Race at 3 p.m. On Sunday 11 o’clock is the sign up and noon is the Race Start. Kid’s Races after Lawnmowers are done. For further information call Deputy Gabe 493-2772.
Sunday is Father’s Day as well. Thanks to all the Father’s who loving care for their children every day of the year!
