Bake sale slated Feb. 11 by Lady Lions
Lady Lions will have a bake sale Saturday, Feb. 11, weather permitting. Mrs. Gene Sivertson announced that the sale will start at 10 a.m. in the Moses Lake Cash Store. Proceeds will be added to club funds for purchase of equipment for Samaritan Hospital.
Cooker awarded to Grange women
Members of the Grange Home Economics Group won a 22-quart pressure cooker for last fall’s canning activities, they learned this week. Mrs. A.O. Pederson, chairman received word from the Bernadine Lid Co. that the cooker is being shipped here because the local group used more of the company’s lids than any other group in last fall’s Pomona Canning Contest, judged at Wilson Creek. Mrs. Pederson said the large cooker will be a welcome addition to the kitchen at the new grange hall.
