A couple of things to note as this and that this week:
Our local “Two Town Tuners” are having their annual Barbershop Variety Show on Saturday and this is a favorite annual event in this area. Along with the Two Town Tuners, a female Sweet Andeline quartet called “SongBurst”will be performing, as well as another Barbershop group called “Flipside.” This show is the group’s biggest fundraiser of the year. They use funds raised for scholarships, summer camps and for costs of the show.
A recent article in The Chronicle described the group’s history as 45 years in length and going strong at 25 members. Besides the annual Variety show, the Two Town Tuners perform regularly at events throughout the county and twice a month at nursing homes and for other seniors. The group is all volunteer so this is a quite a commitment. Local Stillwaters resident Bill Smith is a long-time participant and can be contacted for tickets or more information.
For anyone interested in tomorrow’s show:
1. We have two free tickets available for the Matinee show to the first one to contact us here at the office. After hours today they will be posted on the The Gathering Place bulletin board for the taking.
2. Showtimes are Matinee at 2:02 p.m. and Evening show at 7:02 p.m. Tickets are $7 for Matinee and $10 for evening. The show will be at the W.F. West High School Commons in Chehalis (342 SW 16th St).
The other item of note is that our Killdeer are back!
On Wednesday one of our gardening residents brought in a picture of a Killdeer nest built in the undergrowth of a Blueberry bush, just inside one of our Community Gardens. Two eggs are evident but Mom was too camera shy to join in the photo. One day later the two eggs were joined by a third. There could be more to come! See below:
Click HERE to see a good YouTube video showing a mama Killdeer protecting her nest. This is not a video of our mamma Killdeer as she was too camera shy! This is a great Birding neighborhood. We have regularly had wintering hummingbirds, we are seeing Junkos and other birds, along with our annual Killdeer inundation. Enjoy!
QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

After a couple of sunny days we are forecast to have about three days of rain after a overcast Saturday. Then we have a possibility of some sunny days ahead. Always a nice sign that spring is on its way!
