What a great weekend for the Lind Lions Club and the community!
It was a terrific derby, both Friday and Saturday. Huge crowd, perfect weather
and great Lions Club who kept the weekend moving!  Great entertainment.

Meet Todd, the big raffle winner. Todd spent $10 on a raffle ticket which paid off!  He drove the Lions Club
Combine in the final heat, knocked out a few competitors and ended up with a
3rd place win!  Way to go, Todd!  And a coincidence..(?) ....Todd lives on Derby Pl
in Idaho.  Hope he comes back to compete next year!!

It will be a few weeks before I can get the derby pictures and the weekend activities posted.
Please be patient...!
Welcome to Lind, WA!
In 1987, Georgia Hays inspired Karla Fowles and me to dig into the historical records in the museum and to come up with a project for our Centennial Celebration. Well, we did as asked...spending months and months researching Lind's historical events. We finally published a calendar with information for each day...the information coinciding with the correct day, month, and year. Believe me, it was not all fun and games down there in that dungeon...and without explaining, I'll say that more than once we were scared from something spooky that we'd either 'hear' or by something we'd 'see'. More often than not, we'd head for the stairs and the main door, a foot race to see who could get there first. Usually it was a 'tie' as we'd slam that door open and basically fall into the safety of the street. We were always happy to lock up and calmly go home. Never ever would we even consider going our research down there alone. We pretty much kept quiet about our fears, knowing full well that if we told Jim or Thayne, it would just be more information for them to consider when having us committed...
