River House Bake Shop is going into the Washington Cottage Food program. I am shooting for Cheese Days to be open and selling. Cookies are my things, and quick breads, cakes and cronuts. I'd appreciate it if you could check my fledgling FB page - River House Bake Shop - and help spread the word. Many thanks! Carol Berch

Not Strictly Toledo: If you haven’t made the trip to visit The Chip Guy at God’s Portion warehouse in Centralia, you’re missing out on Lewis County’s premiere gleaning operation. Richard “The Chip Guy” personally welcomes newcomers and regular patrons alike, explains the policies & protocol, and elicits smiles from the inevitable crowd that queues at the door Wednesdays and Saturdays. (Check Facebook to verify times and days, and watch for spontaneous “gives” on other days.)
He writes: ANNOUNCEMENT!!
WAREHOUSE WILL BE OPEN WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20TH.
1025 F ST IN CENTRALIA. PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE BEFORE 5:00 PM.
WE HAVE A FULL WAREHOUSE.
TELL YOUR FRIENDS, TELL YOUR FAMILY, HECK...GO DOOR TO DOOR AND TELL YOUR NEIGHBORS (LOL).
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL...
