Spaghetti feed is for a good cause

A spaghetti dinner this Saturday will help fund a trip for local sixth graders from Lake Roosevelt and Nespelem schools to get to know each other before the two school populations merge at ninth grade.

The feed will also help fund various Rotary Club projects.

School officials say the trip to Tall Timbers in Leavenworth has become something the kids look forward to. The students are recruited to help serve at the dinner and to sell tickets for the event, which starts at 4:30 p.m., Saturday afternoon at Coulee Dam Town Hall.



Officials of both the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce and the Ridge Riders expressed frustration last Thursday when they discussed the difficulty they were having finding a place to hang a four-foot high by 50-foot long banner promoting the upcoming Colorama Festival and Rodeo celebration on Mother’s Day weekend.

They tried to get the Department of Transportation and Grant County PUD to allow them to use their poles to attach the banner to. Both nixed it. The DOT stated that they had concerns about wind loading and how it might affect cameras at the Four Corners intersection, motorist distractions, and some sight issues.
