Waitsburg in the Wintertime!

Well, cold weather finally arrived, with a vengeance this past week, but in spite of the snow & slush… we are having fun planning our upcoming adventures at RYES!

The Matbird kids are up and wrestling again, Urban Forestry just ordered their Elementary School Arbor Day trees, Youth and Government is raising funds for their trip to take over the state government at Olympia and the Switchgrass Delta kids are raising funds for their trip to Ireland!

So, don’t let the snow keep you inside! Come on out to one of the many jams, or events planned by the young-folks of Waitsburg!
Hope to see you soon,

Kate

Halloween Weekend in Waitsburg!

Waitsburg is a friendly town, but once a year, it turns into a town full of goblins, witches and ghosties. Trick or Treating is alive and well in our tiny town. Little kids holding hands with costumed parents, older kids ripping around town trying to score more candy than their friends, jack-o-lanterns everywhere. It’s all the things that I remember from my own childhood. Standard Disclaimer: that’s been a while!

BooGrass at The Plaza!

The Sunday before Halloween there will be a bluegrass concert at the Plaza Theater, on Main Street. The Plaza seems to be the perfect venue for Halloween, since it is rarely open, very old and maybe even…….a little bit scary (in a lovely, old-timey way!).

Rumor has it that Switchgrass Delta, The Whippersnappers, Jasper Mountain, Paul Gregutt and maybe even a few other folks will be playing on stage this year. We will be having a Silent Auction …..a fun way to start your very early Christmas shopping!

Town Hall Spaghetti Dinner

This year, on Halloween, Waitsburg’s Town Hall is hoping to help busy parents by hosting a spaghetti dinner for families. Children can be quickly fed, and dishes done, so that folks can get to the important business of trick-or-treating.

More Halloween events are planned, watch this space!

Urban Forestry Project - New to RYES!

RYES is looking for interested folks in, and around, Waitsburg to join our new Waitsburg Urban Forestry Project!  This brand new project will focus on planting trees in and around Waitsburg and getting Waitsburg it's "Tree City USA" designation.  https://www.arborday.org/programs/treecityusa/

Planting free trees for the Waitsburg Elementary School children and an Arbor Day celebration are two of the things on the 2018 U.F.P. agenda. 

Waitsburg is a shady, lovely town with big, mature trees ....because every generation or so, someone says "Let's plant some trees!"  It's time for *this* generation to take a turn!

Let's Plant Some Trees w/Our Kids!!!
