On Saturday, January 19th, 2019 the Selah Sweets crew got a chance to volunteer for a fundraiser at the Central Washington Agriculture Museum in Union Gap for the “Horse Drawn Wagon Day” aka “Sleigh Day” if there was snow.

It was a cold foggy day, but many volunteers came out to made the event possible to happen. Set up started at 9 AM.

The event ran from 11 AM to 2 PM. There were a lot of people that came out for the fun. People could ride the tractor pulled trams from the parking area to the event area. At the event area there were horse drawn wagon rides, cocoa or cider, bonfire, s’mores, and more!

This was a very fun event. We hope to see you there next year.

Wenas Recreation Area Camp Out & Clean Up
Hosted by Eastern Washington Adventures and the Department of Natural Resources.
Sponsored by Selah Sweets

Report by Clay Graham. Photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets & Flint Buchman.

On Thursday, May 4th, 2017, my son Doc and I headed up to BBQ Flats at the Wenas Recreation Area to set up camp for the weekend camp out. It was a very nice day to be in the mountains. That evening it started to sprinkle but it was warn enough to be out in t-shirts. Doc did some Pine-cone Golfing as I took photos of the cool rainbow. We sat under the pop-up with the propane campfire going into the night. Doc slept in the campervan with me since the tarp was not big enough to keep rain out of his tent. Lucky he did, because around 1 AM we had a thunder and lightening storm. It lasted around 40 minutes and then there was a heavy downpour.

On Saturday, May 6th, 2017, volunteers and Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) met up at our camp for the clean up. At 9:30 AM groups headed out. Two groups in ORVs headed out to replace Green Dot markers and pick up trash. Selah Cub Scout Pack 276 headed out to pick up trash from BBQ Flats to and through Cascade Camp.

Around 3:30 PM all the groups meet back up at BBQ Flats with the trash and tools for the DNR to take back to the Ahtanum Guard Station.

The campers had dinner and enjoyed the campfire. The wind made it a cold night.

Sunday was a very nice day. Everyone packed up and headed home.

This was a great time takes to all who came out.

Photos: Tieton Open House

2017 Tieton Open House
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets.

On Saturday April 22nd, 2017, the City of Tieton had their annual Open House. There were a lot of things to do around the area.

We had our Selah Sweets vintage vendor trailer out front of the Mighty Tieton. Our three sons sold candy bars to raise money to go to Boy Scout Summer Camp at Camp Fife with Troop 275.

There were a lot of things to see, hear and do inside the Mighty Tieton. The live music was very nice to hear. There was a lot of cool art to see. There were also bugs to look at.

In the mosaic studio we had a chance to ask questions and lean about mosaic. It looks like something fun to try someday.

One of the things my family really enjoyed was, Norman L. Brown gave a wooden spoon carving demonstration. That was very interesting. Very nice work.

This was a very fun time. We are hoping to be invited back to the Mighty Tieton for next year’s Tieton Open House.

Here are some photos of the 2017 Tieton Open House:

Wildfire Awareness Day
at the Ahtanum State Forest
Hosted by Boy Scouts of American (Grand Columbia Council, Skookum District),
Selah Sweets, and the Department of Natural Resources.

Report and photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets.

At noon on Saturday April 8th, 2017, we met up at Whites Ridge Trailhead in the Ahtanum State Forest for Wildfire Awareness with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

The DNR staff talked about wildfires, the hard work to put them out, the equipment they use and how to help prevent wildfires. The volunteers were able to see and feel what the fire crew uses to put the wildfires out.

This was a very fun and educational event. Thank you to all the volunteers, DNR staff and Smokey Bear.
