Boos and applause

July 27, 2013
The Inter-Mountain

- Applause to those concerned, involved and ambitious folks who are getting involved with the project of attempting to build a public pool in Elkins. The second meeting on the issue was held this week, and working committees were formed to help organize the effort. The next meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. Aug. 21 at the Elkins City Park Pavilion.

- Applause to all the volunteers who helped organize and present the fifth annual Riverside Blues Fest in Elkins last weekend. Hundreds attended the events, bringing sweet sounds and good vibrations to the area.

- Applause to all those who rolled up their sleeves and helped with the annual Camp Pioneer Ox Roast benefit, which provided savory food for many this week while raising funds to benefit Camp Pioneer.

- Applause to both the organizers and the shoppers for making this week's annual yard sale fundraiser for Saint Brendan Catholic Church in Elkins such a whopping success. Several hundred shoppers flocked to the sale Thursday morning, having fun and helping to raise money for the church and several church-related groups, including Catholic Charities, the local food pantry.

- Boo to a rumor going around that this week's surprisingly cool temperatures signal the early beginnings of autumn. We feel the milder weather is a great change of pace from the punishing heat of the last two weeks, and forecasters are saying we'll have a few more days to enjoy it. The National Weather Service is predicting highs in the low-to-mid 70s through Tuesday, so let's all stop worrying about an early fall and just... chill.
