Annie and Mary day was a huge success, as usual. The weather really cooperated this year! Thanks to all who came out, all who volunteered, and all who had fun!
If you thought that was fun, don’t forget to come out to the culminating week of Dell’ Arte’s Mad River Festival. This festival ends with the Humboldt Folklife Festival on Saturday, July 14 – all day. And the following weekend, July 21, is Pastels in the Park! Want to sponsor a square? Give me a call at City Hall, ( 707) 668-5655.
There are more exciting weekend events in Blue Lake that will be coming up throughout July, and August, like Lawnstock and the Buddy Brown Blues Festival just to name a couple. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for details to come.
And it may be summer, but don’t forget to come out to the Mad River Grange every Friday from 7 to 10 a.m. for Coffee Club! This is the best community gathering each week. Come for the coffee, stay to gab.
Don’t forget about being informed of what your local government is doing as well.
Upcoming meetings include a Blue Lake Planning Commission meeting on Monday, July 16 at 7 p.m. and an Economic Development Commission meeting on Tuesday, July 17 at 3:30 p.m.
Have you ever considered becoming one of those local elected officials? Well, there will be a special information session for potential council candidates on Monday, July 16 from 6 to 6:30 p.m. Find out about the nomination process, important dates, and voter registration information.
You will also be able to learn the roles and responsibilities of a city councilmember and ask questions regarding those roles and responsibilities from current councilmembers.
This special info session, along with all governmental meetings, will take place at Skinner Store, located at 111 Greenwood Rd., behind City Hall. Hope to see you there!
