Di says: Our theater camp students are having a great week and we are all super excited for Friday night's free performance. Hope to see you at 7 p.m. July 28 at the Morgan Arts Centre in Toledo, WA.
Toledo School District posted: Scenes from THS water project entering 3rd week on schedule.
And: Thanks to dedicated volunteers and Tom Martin who finished it off, we have new permanent fencing for the entrance to Ted Hippi stadium.
This represents an annual savings of $1500. #itsyourlevy
Cyndi Philbrook posted: From Norene... Please post this and mention it to gardeners as you see them. Thanks!
The best seed for Toledo will be what has been grown out by area gardeners and selected for local growing conditions.
Please save your heirloom seed and plant starts for the 2018 TOLEDO SEED SWAP. Plan to set aside seed throughout the harvest season.
I suggest packaging most seed in amounts of at least 30 seeds per envelope to give gardeners enough seeds to grow out a seed variety and start saving their own seed. Please label each envelope with the name of the seed (ex., “Bloomsdale Spinach”) and the year it was harvested (ex.,“Harvested in 2017”).

Timberland Bank issues alert on a Caller ID Spoofing Scam:
Recently, we have received questions from Grays Harbor customers regarding phone calls from Timberland Bank occurring after business hours. These phone calls are not from Timberland Bank and are most likely a form of phone fraud known as "Caller ID Spoofing."
It is very easy for scammers to trick Caller ID by using an online "spoofing" service, as seen in the example below. By accessing one of these online services, scammers can make phone calls that appear to be from any phone number they choose, also known as a "spoof number."

Q: Do I have to shave my beard?

Toledo’s resident astrophysicist posts: "On August 21, 2017, a coast-to-coast total eclipse across the United States will occur, the first one in 99 years. As the Moon's shadow hits the Earth and speeds across it, there's so much to see and enjoy, but only if you're prepared. What should you look for? Where should you go? How can you stay safe? And what's the science behind it?"
So, you heard that the total solar eclipse is coming.

Upcoming August Events:
On Pets In Hot Cars: You’ve heard my tirade about this topic. If you find my approach too strong, this article from Lifehacker on When and How To Smash A Window To Rescue A Child Or Pet points out: More states are enacting laws allowing people to break into hot cars to save a child or pet without having to face certain legal liabilities. Oregon enacted one this summer. Arizona’s goes into effect on August 9.
