Highlights from Saturday’s Cheese Days events:
Elayne Novotny, quilting instructor from Pe Ell, loaned her inventory of racks to Cheese Days Quilt Show, the event a tribute this year to Toledo’s peerless Esther Borte who lives on in her traditional works. 51 pieces filled the Middle School main hall, a lifetime enshrined in fabric.
Fheila Schneider, owner of a 1936 IH. Restored by her from a hopeless condition to running. Schneider & her husband share a passion to resurrect relics & return them to the road, hand-crafting parts otherwise unavailable.
“There are shinier classics out there,” she says, “but these are daily drivers.” Her motto: Rust to Lust.
Veteran Earl Clark, one of four Cheese Days Car Show original founders, has been helping Cowlitz & Lewis County Veterans with his grass roots raffle. This year, his eighth, a classic 1972 Chevy pickup will go to one lucky $20 ticket holder August 19 at Lowes in Longview, with other prize packages sponsored by a growing list of supporters. “Organizations and groups want to partner with me, but I feel our supporters believe in my principle - that 100% of all proceeds go directly to one worthy vet.” Contact Earl (360)304-1406, or Stan (360)749-6773 for details.
Di says: We still have several spaces available for children 6-16 in Camp Picasso for the week of July 17-20. Class is 9-noon. All supplies, t-shirt and snacks provided. Monday - Thursday. call 864-4ART Morgan Arts Centre or look on line at: www.morganartscentre.com
So...Native Soil Farm needs help weeding strawberries <smile>.
Come pick as many strawberries as you want in a row and help us weed the row too! This Sunday July 9th and Monday July 10th. We will also do this the following weekend.
If you can do more weeding than picking (more than a row) a small stipend can be offered.
Thank you!!! Call Aundrea 830-331-0410 to schedule a time.

I have some wonderful news to share with those that are interested.
Master Shipbo Merraya Hernan Romas of the Peruvian Amazon is coming to the United States with his wife Rosaura.
Hernan and his family are my close extended family that live in Peru. Throughout my relationship with them they have guided and enriched my life deeply with true support, real love, and health. They have always held the space for me to live my life and truth, always supporting my interior, knowing I could fulfill my dreams. They never did it for me just held steadfast space and belief that I could!
They have immense knowledge, understanding, and education about the Natural World and Health and want to share this with others. We are offering intensive programs and diets for wholeness and healing that is nature and energetically based.
Focused alignment with Nature provides a harmonic stable environment, infinite wisdom, and wellness. The Natural World is a perfect reflection and teacher to life and creation. Focusing with nature we can collectively empower a conscious "whole" life of love.
I am organizing 7-12 day trips to the Amazon Jungle near Pucallpa Ucayali, Peru. This is for those of you that are seeking and wanting authentic experiences in healing with the cooperation of the amazonian plants. You will be working with Master Shipibo Onanya Hernan Romas Lomas, his wife Rosaura and my family. Hernan comes from a thousand year old lineage and focus of Natural Doctors and Healers.
Hernan and family will be visiting the United States this summer where it is possible for you to meet them initially. Translators will be available and provided.
We support each individuals or groups wellness and wholeness with nature as a reflective stabilizer and teacher. We offer preparation and focus in expanding each person's relationship with themselves and nature.
If you are inspired and initiated to learn more, contact me by messenger or call me.
With Respect and love, Aundrea
