What a great weekend!

Orchard Centennial Kick-0ff - With a full house at the Golden West Lodge, the Kick-off to the Buckner Orchard Centennial was an over-whelming success. Thanks to the tremendous work of Adrienne Carpenter and Christine Sargo, the 95 attendees were provided personal and entertaining insights to the people and life at the Orchard over the past 100 years. Displays of historic photographs, personal letters to and from the Buckner Family,artifacts, and anecdotes shared made for a extraordinary evening. (

2nd Annual Harvest Fest - Bracketed by beautiful fall weather, Harvest Fest avoided the heavy rain of Friday and Saturday evenings for another great day of picking apples, making cider, and community potluck while enjoying the music of Stehekin's own, End of the Road.

Pictures are worth a thousand words, so please enjoy the creative and captivating work of Mike and Nancy Barnhart/Barnhart Photography, Crystal Austin of Crystalviewgraphics, Rick Beauchesne, and Herb Sargo. Many thanks to all for sharing these with us.

Wilfred Woods has, again, captured the spirit of the weekend in his Talking it Over column on the front page of the Wenatchee World. Thanks, Wilfred!

Start planning now for Saturday, October 8, for the 3rd annual Harvest Fest.

Many thanks to the many,many people who made both of these events a success!
