• August and the next two weekends bring lots of excitement to Lorane, starting with this Saturday, Aug. 3. It’s time for the Lorane Community-wide Garage/Yard sales. Published hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Some may open earlier or close later. If you do not want to have it at your home, call Jeri at 541-942-2448 to rent a table at the Grange for $10. There is still time. Maps are in many places: homes, at the grange and area stores. Come out for a great day and remember: Someone’s giveaway may be your treasure.

• On Sunday, Aug. 4, the Gear Bicycle Club has a 100-mile run, starting early in the morning. They will be stopping at the Grange for a brief rest stop.

• Next Sunday, Aug. 11, come enjoy the annual Lorane Community Potluck at the Lorane Grange. Doors will open at 10 a.m., so those going to church may drop off their dish. Many people come around 11 a.m. to visit, with lunch starting promptly at noon. Please remember to mark your dishes in case you forget them. After eating, wander down to the Fire Hall for the annual Volunteer Fire Department Ice Cream Social from 1 to 5 p.m. Come enjoy delicious pies and ice cream while enjoying music by Kyle and Jim. Take a fire engine ride or enjoy any of the various activities taking place on the church lawn across the street.

• Just a reminder that there is a Red Flag warning in our area. It is hot, dry and windy, so please be careful. Be aware of times when you cannot run any combustion-driven equipment. This includes lawnmowers, weed-eaters and power saws. If you’re not sure, check with the fire department or read the signs. Things are very dry and we do not need more wildfires.
