Etcetera 3/14/13


It’s almost baseball and softball season, which is when the community of Adams steps up to the plate with its annual Adams Day celebration.

Reservations are now being accepted for vendors, crafters and parade entries for the April 20 event, according to Lisa Youncs at

The event is centered around the opening day of Triangle Little League baseball and softball, Lisa said.

Breakfast will be served by the Adams Ladies Club from 7-10 a.m. Once attendees are nourished, the parade will begin at 9 a.m. and baseball festivities begin at 10 a.m.

The Ladies Club will also whip up its famous homemade pie and cinnamon rolls for a bake sale from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

A large variety of crafters and vendors will start the farmers market and craft bazaar season. Limited spaces are available indoors, so Lisa encourages calling her at 541-310-0134 to reserve a table. Outdoor spaces are along a walkway in the park, and are reserved in advance for $5 each.

Also look for signs posted for multiple yard and estate sales around town. For parade entries, call Kathleen at 541-566-0494.

Athena Study Club recently made a donation to the Weston McEwen High School Pipes and Drums band toward its trip this summer.

They also made a donation to the Athena Elementary School for its iPad program.

Founded in 1925, Athena Study Club meets twice per month at the Athena Library. For more information or to attend the next meeting, call Mary Price at 541-566-2014.

As part of its conservation efforts, members of Pheasants Forever will convene at 9 a.m. Saturday to lay a 300-foot by 15-foot tarp won at the group’s recent banquet by Joe Frazier.

The site is in Oregon just north of the Spofford elevator and can be accessed by passenger car, said organizer Larry Boe. If coming from Walla Walla, drive south on Powerline Road into Oregon. Turn right on Birch Creek Road towards the elevator. At the elevator, turn right on Eliott Road and after about 1/4 mile cross the railroad tracks. The place is on the edge of a field next to a creek bed.

Participants should bring shovels, as a trench will probably have to be excavated.

The site has been prepared, so the laying should go quickly.

If time permits, shrubs will be planted. Refreshments will be provided. For more details, email
