For the last three years, close to Halloween, several volunteers come together to produce a fundraiser which benefits the Mount Si Food Bank. It is a walking play with several scenes staged along a dark trail through the wilderness area behind the police station on Snoqualmie Ridge. It stays true to the Halloween theme with mummies, creatures of the night, zombies, et cetera. We batch groups of ten or twelve, spacing them so each group will come on each scene after the preceding group has gone on down the trail.

Neither early nor late, North Bend’s celebration of Arbor Day, Thursday, Nov. 14, included ideal weather for planting trees. But then, this time of year is usually good for that, says North Bend Senior Planner Mike McCarty. Although Washington usually celebrates the event in April, North Bend declared its own Arbor Day last week, because “this is typically the best time of year to plant trees,” says McCarty. “We have such mild winters, it gives the roots more time to get established.”
