• Today, July 24, the Lane County Fair opens. It’s Grange Day, so come by, view the Grange booths, vote for your favorite display and enjoy free cookies, coffee and some water. All children age 10 and under, bring fruits and/or veggies all dressed up and get into the fair for free.
• Lorane community garage/yard sale is Saturday, Aug. 3, all day. There’s still time to sign up and have your site on the map for free. For more information, contact Louise at [email protected] To rent a table at the Grange for $10, call Jeri Porter at 541-942-2448.
• It’s coming fast: All-day fun in Lorane on Aug. 11. Start at Lorane Grange with the annual Community Potluck (formerly the Lorane Old-timers Potluck). Bring a dish to share and come early to visit. Doors open at 11 a.m. and lunch starts at noon. All are welcome, both long-time residents and new neighbors. It’s a great way to meet your community.
Then, wander on down to the Lorane Fire Hall for the annual Volunteer Fire Department Ice Cream Social from 1 to 5 p.m. Enjoy a delicious variety of pies and ice cream, as well as music while you eat and visit. Take a ride in a fire engine, dunk someone in the dunk tank (across the road in front of the church) or take a ride in a man-bucket to view the area. The event is fun for all ages.
• It’s hard to believe, but by Aug. 11 the school supply lists will be out for the fall.
