Toledo School District posted: Our thanks to all the parents who conferenced with teachers last week. This extra time in the evenings is supported by levy dollars and is an investment in student success. If you weren't able to attend, I'll be sending a letter your way to give you some options for connecting with your scholar's teacher. I can't stress enough how important parent partnership is in student success.

Today: Application Deadline - Lewis County Beekeepers Association's 2018 Youth in Beekeeping Scholarship Program. Do you know young people from families new to beekeeping who'd like to get started with bees? Please tell them about our Youth Scholarship Program! LCBA hopes to sponsor three young beekeepers in 2018. We're seeking students between 6th and 10th grades in 2017-18 - home-schooled students are welcome to apply, too. Students who win a scholarship are loaned bees and all necessary gear; if they complete the scholarship commitment to attend our beginning beekeeping class, workshops, some meetings, and to volunteer at LCBA's exhibits at the Spring Youth Fair and Southwest Washington Fairs, then they keep their bees and gear. Each Youth Scholar is matched with an experienced beekeeping mentor to guide them through their first year as beekeepers. More info & the application materials are on our website at this link. Students with questions are welcome to contact Susanne Weil, email@example.com or call 360 880 8130.

It's Turkey Bingo Time! 6pm at Toledo High School. One can of food for each card up to four cards. Or $1.00 a card up to 4 cards. Why not bring a bag of food? It all goes to the Toledo Food Bank and helps feed your neighbors in need!
This annual favorite event is probably Toledo Lions Club’s worst-kept secret. Word of mouth has been drawing Bingo players for years. The annual Toledo Lions Club Turkey Bingo will be at 6 p.m. Saturday, November 18 at the Toledo High School multipurpose room. Entrance is a $1 donation or a can of food for the Toledo food bank. We will be giving away 75 turkeys this year.
Op Ed: In some circles November is considered Gratitude Month, sharing is encouraged, and nobody goes hungry. Consider your neighbors during Thanksgiving season, both those seated next to you and others you know only a little who may be struggling this year. Toledo Lions Club strives to set the table for Thanksgiving while bringing fun and entertainment to the community.
In short: Don’t hoard turkeys. Play nice & share. Once you’ve won your prize, relax and watch. Better yet, pass it along to a worthy recipient or cause. That way, everyone wins.
Saturday & Sunday:
Supports local artists - your neighbors and friends.
Monday: Toledo Food Bank open 10 a.m - 1 p.m. behind City Hall on special November and December Holiday schedule:
