"To everyone who loves the blues, good dancing music and exceptional food and beverages, you won't ant to miss our Bash a the Base of the Blues," emailed Cindy Granger about a Milton-Freewater Rotary Club fundraiser coming up on Sept. 22.

Held on the Frazier Farmstead Museum grounds, 1403 Chestnut St., Milton-Freewater, the bash will feature New Orleans-style appetizers, dinner and dessert.

Beverages will be poured by Tero Estates, Flying Trout, Watermill, Blue Mountain Cider, Prodigal Son and Dragon's Gate Brewery.

Shanks Pony will arrive with a saddlebag full of blues and DJ Bob Jones will bring on the New Orleans-style music following the social hour.

There will also be silent and live auctions to benefit the McCrae-Ireland Baseball Field Bleacher Project and other youth activities in Milton-Freewater.

Tickets are $50 per person for the event, including two drink tickets "and an awesome party favor you are not going to want to miss," Cindy said.

Cindy has volunteered to pick up any service or product anyone would like to donate to the auction

The Carnegie Picture Lab art program got a leg up on its relocation to 515 E. Main St., courtesy of Walla Walla High School football players who volunteered to move it.

"Strong and tireless, these guys were great, good humored and even invited their friends to join the fun," said Augusta Farnum, who helps coordinate the program.

Walla Walla Public Schools Week in Review said movers included Zach Anderson, Dean Atkinson, Trever Coronado, A.J. Crump, Ethan Gardner, Zachary Gilvey, Darnell Handcox, Daniel Lake, Jeremy Larson, Reid Magnaghi, Quinn Piver and Logan Reardon.

Some may remember it as Carnegie Art Center's Picture Lady Program.

The nonprofit volunteer-led organization, founded in the early 1970s, provides art education to children in the Walla Walla Valley from kindergarten through fifth grade.
