Rare Bird:
The Sanderling
I scan the dense growth of tules and cattails along the shoreline of Sweitzer Lake… a few birds, but not the ones I’m looking for. My birds need a sandy shoreline, preferably with ocean waves.

c01 wall1The students at Cedaredge Middle School are sitting on top of the world. They got there through persistence, determination and some dreaming — the same attributes that will get them to the top of the climbing wall installed in the school gym over the summer.

Michael Long, a longtime CMS teacher, emceed a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the climbing wall Aug. 26. Long transferred to Delta this year, but was one of the driving forces behind the project that was “seven years in the making.”

c01 party4Autumn is the time of year when the extended community that comprises Cedaredge really begins to bloom.

Things start with the customary back-to-school  activities — two-a-day football practices, marching band rehearsals,  Homecoming and more.

As September moves on, the annual Pops in the Park concert takes place. This year the event is scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6.

Two concerts and a reception to celebrate “25 Years of Love and Music” will take place on Sept. 13 at the Chapel of the Cross in Pioneer Town. The first program will begin at 4 p.m. and the second at 7 p.m., with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Stolte Shed to accommodate those who attend either concert. 

Chapel seating is limited. Tickets are required, available free at the Welcome Center and Munson’s Main Street Gallery in Cedaredge.
